Christmas Holiday
Pot Luck Party
Friday, December 1st at 6:30pm
St. Paul Episcopal Church
9200 W. 10th Ave, Lakewood, CO
(10th Avenue and Garrison Street)

Come celebrate the season with good company, fun things to do, entertainment, good food, and contests. Note that we are starting the celebration an hour earlier. Here are some of the activities we are planning and need all to pitch in and volunteer to help:

Pot Luck Food - bring your favorite party pot luck food! We will have plates, flatwear, napkins, cups, drinks, and condiments.

Kids Mineral Challenge - challenge for the kids with prizes.

Amateur and Expert Mineral Challenge - for the adults with prizes.

Entertainment – Madrigal choir (20-minute program)

Gift Exchange - bring a rock related gift (approximately $10), then you will receive a gift. We have our own “rock tree” to place your packages under and get a ticket.

Cake Steal - we need cakes for our cake table. Tickets will be $1.00 for a chance to win one. Please donate a cake
Raffle – a raffle of six very nice mineral specimens.

Mitten Tree - Please bring kids mittens, hats, and scarfs to donate to St. Paul’s mitten tree. We like to say thank you to the Church for hosting our meetings throughout the year by donating to the mitten tree.

Visitor from the North - we will have a visitor from the North, farther than Point Barrow.

With all of this activity going on, we need everyone who can, come to the church on December 1st at 5:15pm to set up and decorate the tables, bring your cakes in, help with the food, and decorate the tree. The party will start at 6:30pm. Then after the party, we need to get everything back together even better than we found it when we came in.

Visitors, guests and kids are always welcome
to attend the general meetings.
