OHPV Annual Holiday/Christmas Party Sunday Dec 10, 2017
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:19:31 PM »
Please mark your calendars for Sunday, December 10th, 2017 for our annual OHPV Christmas/Holiday Party.  This year our hosts will again be Ginny & Chris Achterman, who now live in the Happy Valley/Damascus area.  Address and directions to follow in the next few day. 

Arrive by 2pm, bringing your favorite pot luck dish to share (we'll eat about 2:30pm).  Chris & Ginny will provide the main course and some refreshments (including some bottles of wine donated by Laural Engeman).  Please bring snacks, hot side dishes, cold side dishes, salads, desserts, etc.

Please bring slippers or wear warm, fun socks as they will ask visitors to please leave their shoes at the door.

After we eat, we will hold our OHPV general meeting, with our annual elections of board officers.  If you want to be on the board or know someone you want to nominate to be on the board, or have questions or suggestions or comments, this is a really good meeting to attend.  We'll have an update on next year's Recumbent Retreat along with any other news.

After the meeting, we do a "White Elephant" gift exchange.  Participation is voluntary, but if you want to participate, you need to bring a wrapped gift, to get a gift.  Not everyone joins in, so don't feel obligated.  But it is a lot of fun.  Gift value should be around $15 to $20 - something bike related is usually nice.

More details will follow as we get closer to the date.   

Thanks!
Edna

Reminder: please let us know if you plan to attend, since we need to rent enough chairs. We don't want you to have to sit on the floor or someone's lap :-)

Just want to say a big Thank You to Ginny & Chris Achterman for hosting our fun Holiday/Christmas party, and to everyone who attended.

Though our crowd was small, it was very fun and festive. We visited, laughed, hugged, ate a lot, drank a little, had a short but productive meeting, voted on board members for 2018 and got some really good gifts. Whew! I think that covers the afternoon (minutes from the meeting should be posted by tomorrow evening). Now let's see if we can fit in a ride or two before the end of the year :-)
