Highlighted Event: December 2015 Holiday Party

Holidays are for the kids in us. We’re heading into the most celebratory time of the year, and that means it’s just about time for our annual December Holiday Party, to be held on Sunday, December 6th from 1pm – 4pm. This event has been a great year-end delight since the rebirth of the chapter.

Our host is Clearview Treatment Program in Venice, located at 911 Coeur D’Alene Avenue, Venice 90219, at the corner of Lincoln Boulevard, a fabulous space that offers both indoor and outdoor areas to visit with each other in a spacious, relaxing setting. Free parking is available in an adjacent parking lot.

We structure the Holiday Party as a “potluck.” Every year the food has been plentiful and delicious. We have amazing chefs in our membership. It’s always impressive to see the creativity in the culinary offerings.

Along with great food and conversation, I lead a holiday sing-along of seasonal favorites and a smattering of Beatles, Paul Simon, James Taylor and 50’s/60’s – blasts from the past. Anyone who plays a musical instrument is encouraged to bring it. Everyone can participate in the entertainment, or bring a game to play.

Be sure to join us. Look for invitations in your email. Put on your holiday fun clothes. Bring food to share, with musical talents and instruments to jam.

Can you say “Jingle those bells?” See you there!
