Christmas 2015 Luncheon
Saturday Dec. 19th 12:00-4:00 (eat at 12:30)

Danish Club Members, Friends and Former Members:

I know you are all probably busy thinking about Thanksgiving about now but we need to think ahead to Julefest which is right around the corner.

Everyone seemed to be happy with the way we arranged it the last couple of years so we will continue with a repeat of that. The date is set for Saturday December 19th at Walton Lake Sports Complex and Clubhouse again. If we eat around 12:30 we should have plenty of time to socialize, eat, sing carols and clean up by 4:00. The tree stays up until after New Years.

The cost of the function will be $5 for each member family to at least partially cover the rental of the facility. You may bring guests at $5 per person (no charge for guests under age 12). Each participating family should bring a portion of the meal. Please bring your fair share. We ask that you bring enough to feed your family plus 5 additional members. Also, please bring your items “table ready” along with any required serving pieces. An oven and microwave are available for heating up if necessary.

Below are our suggested lunch items from which to choose. If you do not choose as you send in your reservation we can assign foods later on that have not already been spoken for.

I could use some help setting up the Christmas tree. It needs to be up for a Santa Breakfast on Dec. 5th so if anyone is available to help on Thursday 12/3 I would like to hear from you. If you are not available on the 3rd you still have a chance to help. It needs to come down again after the New Year where we are a little more flexible. We can do it anytime Jan. 1st to 3rd. Please let me hear from some of you.

If anyone is interested in a Christmas service in Danish it will take place on Sunday December 20 at 2:00PM at Faith Lutheran Church on Arlington Blvd. in Arlington, VA with refreshments following. If you grew up in Denmark it should bring back some childhood memories.
