Hi Next Gen Group & Friends,
We’ve had a great year of monthly get-togethers with speakers, films, panel and book discussions, and community service projects. Now the Next Gen planning committee says it’s time to celebrate! 
Join in for the end-of-year Get-together 
Around-the-World Potluck!! 

When: Sat. Dec. 16, 2017
Time: Anytime between 11 and 3 pm

Location: Sue and Peter Wendel’s house (address provided upon RSVP)

In addition to a favorite dish from you travels,

if you want, bring:
– a menorah — hanukiah to be precise — to light for Chanukah
– record albums to play on Sue’s old fashioned record player
– pictures of memories of travel to talk about; wishes and hopes for the new year
– a white elephant wrapped gift (fun rule: do not spend any $)
This will be a fun time to be together in a relaxing setting, schmooze, celebrate,

and enjoy favorite foods from around the world. Please RSVP to this email if you can come!

All the best and have a wonderful Thanksgiving,
Sue & Diana, co-coordinators; and the planning committee
