Holiday Party

From our President Cindy Pierson:

What:    FCPS Holiday Get-Together
When:  Saturday, December 2nd,10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Where: Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach

Hello fellow FCPS members!

A reminder that our December Holiday Get-Together is coming up soon!!

This year, we'll follow the same format, with a pot-luck brunch ~  please bring a brunchy snack of some sort to share.  FCPS will provide the coffee and beverages.

Our Past President, Lyn Asselta, will be giving a demo!!

Also, as we did in January to celebrate our Anniversary, we'd like to do a gift exchange.  
To participate, members should bring in One small, 5x7 , FRAMED painting, WRAPPED. 
When you get to the meeting, each painting will be assigned a number, and then we will draw numbers from a basket to see whose painting we would go home with.  Make sure not to draw the number assigned to your painting 😉
We have such a wonderful group of artists in the FCPS. The painting exchange was lots of fun when we did it before.

So, bring along a wrapped painting, a small snack to share, and prepare to enjoy the Demo!
This is always such a fun morning and it's a great way to kick off everyone's holiday season!
