The details of the  Holiday/Winter Extravaganza Swap were detailed at the September meeting. You can read more about it in the meeting notes.

Gifts will be due at the December 12 meeting and party. Contact Joy-Lily via the Ning forum if you cannot attend the December meeting so that you can get your gift to someone who can give your gift out at the meeting. It is a disappointment to the person who brings a gift not to receive something at the same time.
