Our December 2019 will be hosted by Troy and Cheryl Hedge at Hemisphere Brewing Company in Rockwall, TX on Sunday, December 8, 2019.
The meeting will feature a gift exchange, wine share, dinner, and wines brought by our members. The brewer at Hemisphere may do a small presentation of his brewing process for added learning at the meeting.
Members should bring an appetizer, side dish or dessert to go with smoked pulled pork, a wine glass, and a bottle of homemade or commercial wine per couple.
Each person wishing to participate should also bring a wrapped gift for the White Elephant gift exchange. White elephant gifts can be good, bad, ugly, re-gifted, fun, clever, useless, or useful, but mostly they should be good for a warm-hearted laugh. Gifts are anonymous, so don't be shy about expressing your hidden desire to re-gift that other-man's-treasure you've always never wanted.
From now until just before the voting, please nominate anyone you would like to see as officers next year: President, Vice President, and Treasurer. Please send an email to me (Scott Bouline) of your nomination or interest in the position!
Please RSVP by December 1, 2019, by replying to this email so that we can plan accordingly.
