Our December gathering will be our annual Christmas Ceili, and it will take place on Thursday, December 4th this year. The ceili will be a potluck as in years past, so please plan to bring something yummy to share. This will be a fun event for all ages, so encourage your extended family to attend. And people definitely don’t need to be IAS members or even Irish to attend, so bring friends! The more the merrier.
Please consider arriving early to help us with décor and set up. Please note that we will not start going through the buffet until 7:00 pm in order to get everything set up properly. If your dinnertime is earlier, then please eat a snack in the afternoon that will tide you over until 7 pm.
PLEASE BRING WHATEVER CANNED GOODS AND OTHER NONPERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS YOU CAN SPARE TO THE MEETING IN DECEMBER TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE CHURCH’S FOOD PANTRY FOR THOSE LESS FORTUNATE. Let’s try to brighten the holiday season for others.
As in the previous three years, please note that the holiday decoration contest at our Christmas Ceili will have 3 categories: (1) table centerpiece, (2) wreath/door hanging, and (3) ornament. Each entry will be judged on beauty, creativity, and artisanship. Bragging rights are at stake, plus I have some nice Irish seasonal prizes for the winners!
Edward is organizing live music for us for the party. If you play, please bring an instrument and sit in! Irish dancers Anne-Bernadette Dail and Sandy Archer are going to be calling ceilis all night for those of us willing and able to dance! Be prepared to kick off your shoes and join in the fun – no experience necessary!
It’s sure to be a lovely night of fun, festivity, and fellowship – don’t miss out! And BYOC! (Bring your own cooler!)
