December 8th – Virtual Holiday Party

Description

Instead of having a December guest speaker, we will be hosting a virtual holiday party on Zoom!

The highlight for the evening will be our Creative Sharing time. During this time, we want to invite our members and guests to share their creative efforts with us. This can take any form, including but not limited to:

  • A short story or poem
  • A piece of art
  • A piece of music or rap
  • A video, either created by the sharer or showcasing them pursuing their passions
  • A craft project, such as a quilt or a sweater

We hope you will share your talents and passion with us as we come together to celebrate this season! Sharing is completely optional; if you don’t feel comfortable sharing, you don’t have to.
