SVBS Monthly Meeting
Norman Murray Community & Senior Center
Thursday, December 7th 2023 7:00 pm
Come join us for a very festive evening of fun with your Bromeliad friends. Our festivities will begin with a delicious potluck dinner. Barbara Stewart (shown at right) will bring a home-cooked turkey and the club will provide a ham. Please bring any side dish, salad,
or desert that you would prefer. Barbara will also provide our beautiful table decorations. After dinner, we will have our gift exchange and you must bring a gift if you wish to participate. The gifts should be wrapped, garden-related, and valued at about $15.00. Each person will receive a ticket to determine the order in which the presents are chosen. But—don’t open your present yet because the tickets will be called a second time and that’s when the fun begins as some presents are “stolen” several times. Finally, we all open our presents to find a great variety of very interesting gifts, including lots of Bromeliads and sometimes even delightful homemade gifts.
