Holiday Party 2012

Please attend TVAA’s Christmas Party which will be held at my home on 12/14 from 6:30 pm to 8:00?

Please bring hor d’oeuvres, a side dish, or a dessert.

Bring your latest Artist Trading Cards to swap with others to keep a Christmas memory. If you have any with a Christmas theme even better.

Create a Christmas card that folks may purchase for $5.00, and the money will go toward the scholarship fund.

Please RSVP to my email at z_jr@sbcglobal.net so we may know what to expect with regard to food and beverage.

Hope to see you here.
