December: No Program

SGVCSS ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY!

Instead of our usual monthly meeting, in December, we’ll have our annual
Holiday Party & Potluck Dinner on Sunday, December 4th, in Ayers Hall at the LA County Arboretum.  Park in the side parking lot and enter through the gate next to the hall. 

Setup starts at 3:00 p.m., and WE NEED YOUR HELP to set up tables and the room.    Dinner starts at 5:00 p.m.  The club provides turkey, ham, gravy, plates, cups, and utensils.  Club members provide appetizers, salads, relishes, side dishes, and desserts.  Please bring stuffing, yams, that yummy casserole your family begs for….anything you’d like to share.   And please bring enough to feed both you and your guests (one dish per person ensures that we have enough food for everyone).  There are some fantastic cooks in our club, and the meal is always outstanding. 

Please call your dinner coordinators Rebecca Mallonee (714)299-1304 or
Mary Brumbaugh (626)201-8615 to volunteer your set-up/clean-up services, or for questions. 
We still need cooks FOR TURKEYS AND HAMS, so please call to volunteer.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  We will have limited access to the kitchen this year, so plan your dish accordingly.  No warming up before serving, nor washing dishes after dinner.
Break out those crock pots and warming trays!

Gift Exchange: Anyone may participate in this optional activity.  Bring one
cactus, succulent, or related item per person.  It must be in good condition (something you would like to receive).  Attach a label with your name on one side and the species on the other.  The item that is deemed most desirable will be sold during the auction.  The person who brought in that item gets first pick from all remaining items.  The person who brought that item gets to pick next, and so on

Holiday Plants:  Each member receives a Holiday Plant as a gift from the Club.  Members are invited to bring in plants from previous Holiday Parties to show how well they have been grown. 

Plant Auction:  Bring Money!  This is a great opportunity to purchase or
sell rare or specimen sized plants.  Items will be auctioned by some of our
knowledgeable members.  Auction Rules are:
*  Must be a club member to sell.
*  Limit of 2 plants or cactus/succulent-related items per member.
*  Other items may include artwork such as paintings and pottery,
     or just neat items with cactus/succulents on them.
*  Plants must be mature, well-grown specimens.
*  Club gets 25% of the proceeds, seller gets 75%.
*  Label your auction items with your name and the minimum bid you’ll accept.        *  If the item is a donation to the club, then indicate such.

SEE YOU SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4th!
