Chapter Dinner Meeting

12/05/2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join in celebrating another excellent year-end at our NAWIC Annual Holiday Party!  This year we will be doing a White Elephant gift exchange, and the theme is going to be “As Seen on TV” items.  A few places that carry these brands: HEB, Dollar General, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walgreens, Amazon & Walmart.  Special prize to the person who gets the funniest gift and the “best festive attire”.

For all that you all do for NAWIC throughout the year, there will be no fee for members at this meeting.  If a potential member would like to attend the fee is $35, and they will be invoiced and payment must be received prior to the party.

We all have so many things to be thankful and merry about this holiday season and for that reason, we would like the support the following groups with a few wish list items. Please bring your unwrapped item to the party and we will drop everything off at the organizations. 

Mobile Loaves and Fishes:  Community First! The village is a 51-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas. They are requesting the following donations:

$25.00 gift cards from Visa, HEB, or Walmart
Blankets, pantry items, and heaters
Decorations: small trees, wreaths, and lights.
If you would like they also have this Amazon wish list set up and you can have the items shipped directly there. Wish list items:   https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/3HMXQ1S8N0Z4Q/ref=cm_sw_su_w
