Missoula Iris Society Newsletter - December 2007



Here is the December newsletter. The year is gone. What happened? I donít know but the years get shorter and shorter. Its time for our annual Christmas Party again and the wonderful holiday spirit that keeps us all together.


Our annual Christmas Party will be at the home of Billie Gray. Donít forget to bring your gift. The gift exchange is sooo much fun.

Pete Addeo,

Missoula Iris Society


DATE & TIME: Sunday, December 2nd, 1:00 pm.  Potluck & Turkey dinner begins at 2:00 pm., which is much earlier than in the past. By starting earlier, we can enjoy the gift exchange and not be kept out too late for the drive home.

PLACE:   Home of Billie Gray,  call 543-3480 for directions

PROGRAM:  Christmas Party and gift exchange.






The $9.00 annual membership dues are due now for the 2008 year. Please pay your dues before the end of the Month to keep us up to date and to keep receiving this newsletter.



Everyone brings a gift (up to $12.00 value) and we put all the gifts in the center of the room and then pick numbers to see who goes first. The #1 person gets to pick any gift from the pile. The gift is opened for all to see. Then the #2 person in line can pick the gift that #1 picked or pick from the stack and the same goes for each one thereafter. If you pick one of the opened gifts, then that person now can pick someone elseís gift or from the stack. The limit is 3 times for any one gift to own. There is a lot of heavy duty trading between everyone and the laughs just keep coming. It is a great end to a wonderful year with our friends and members.

It's Their Birthday!!....Let's Give 'Em a Cheer!!!
