CHRISTMAS OFFICE PARTY
DECEMBER 6, 2013
It is that time of year again when curling and the Christmas spirit mix at the Legion. Winnie’s Memorial Christmas Office party will again be held at the conclusion of the Ham and Turkey Bonspiel Finals, this year on Friday December 6. The curling gets underway at 19h30 and the party will follow the awards presentation, at approximately 22h00.
All members are invited to watch the curling and then join in the celebration of Winnie Normandeau’s contribution to the Christmas social season. Winnie was an active curler and supporter of the club, often coming up with great ideas for fun and fund raising for the Legion Curling Club. She worked very hard to get all involved.
One Christmas season Winnie was trying to get everybody to come to a Christmas Party, only to be told that they had other plans and were going to their own office party. Not to be daunted, she said – “I’ll have my own OFFICE PARTY - and they had better come because I’m the BOSS”. Well, many showed up and everyone had a great time. It’s now become a Christmas tradition at the Legion in her memory.
The focus of the evening is the always entertaining and somewhat riotous gift exchange. Participants bring a wrapped gift with a value of $5.00-$10.00 and the fun begins with an attempt to explain the rules of the game. Once underway players will select a gift from the table, may find it taken by another player, then return to the table and so on. Some gifts will may tour the room before eventually finding a home at the end of the game. Disguising the gift contributes to the mayhem. Laughter trumps all during the evening and experience shows that it is a wonderful way to begin the Christmas season.
Munchies for the evening are in a pot luck format and as always is wonderfully organized by Sandy Eades. Please bring a little something(nibbles or sweets) to share with everyone and let Sandy know what you will be contributing.
Hopefully you will have the opportunity to join us on December 6.
