      Program: Annual Potluck, Auction & Book Sale
      Speaker:  N/A

  It's time for our traditional December get-together, potluck, auction and surplus book sale (instead of a program and speaker).

Bring your favorite finger food (beverages will be provided) for our potluck. WVGS will provide utensils, plates, and napkins. Christmas goodies are always popular! Bring a white elephant, book, Christmas items or baked goods for the auction (plus plenty of cash or your checkbook for you’re sure to find just the item you’ve been searching for or a perfect Christmas gift for a friend) and be prepared for a fun time at this last meeting of the year! 

 We will also have a sale of our surplus books and periodicals. A list will be in the December newsletter. After the meeting on December 14th a list of unsold books will be on our website at www.wvgsor.org. No pre-sales, members have first choice. Books not sold will be available to those not at the meeting, whether members or not. 
Bring a friend or spouse too! This is an informal meeting and a good way for a family member or friend who might be interested in joining to meet our group.

               Our programs are always open to the public.
