Greetings SSC! I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and were able to get some shopping done with great Black Friday deals! We have decided to combine an adult social event and the December meeting for an evening of holiday cheer, friends and COOKIES! I'm really looking forward to seeing so many of you at Molly's house for our cookie exchange on Wednesday, December 11.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! Allison
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Can you believe it's already December? Time certainly flies. I'm really looking forward to seeing lots of you at the December meeting and cookie exchange next week at my house.
We had a blast last year and I'm sure we can top it this time around!
Make sure to turn in receipts on time (within 30 days of purchase).
Happy Holidays! DC is such a fun place to live near during the holidays! There's the Zoo lights, the National Christmas trees, The LDS temple visitors center and the Nutcracker, just to name a few.
I hope you enjoy your Holiday season and have safe travels!
Happy Holidays! A quick thanks to everyone who came to the potluck dinner! We had tons of fun and tons of amazing food! Thanks to Kristen Ryba for hosting this event at her house.
In the spirit of gift-giving, we will be throwing our My Favorite Things Party this month! This get together is a great way to socialize with everyone, and give/receive some awesome items. Everything will be explained on the Evite, but basically everyone will be asked to bring 3 of their "favorite thing(s)." This means you will bring 3 of the SAME item. For instance, if you love Burt's Bees Lip Balm, you would bring 3 of them (may be different flavors, colors, etc.), each individually wrapped. Each person will each pick 3 different names, exchange their goodie, and explain why they love it so much! In the end, you will leave with 3 different things that 3 different people love! We ask that each item cost no more than $5-$10 (less is fine!!!) We don't want this to break your bank! Also, the more creative the better! Homemade/DIY items or food are perfect! Stay tuned for the specific date.
We will send out an Evite and Facebook notification.
Also, look for an upcoming movie night (will be posted on Facebook)!
Join us at the next SSC Wounded Warrior Run meeting on Wednesday, December 18th from 6:30-8:00 pm at my house (email for address). Help support the club and Walter Reed Wounded Warriors by being a part of this wonderful event.
Hope to see you all there and bring something small to share with the group if you can!
It's never too late to join the SSC! Hear grumblings from other spouses about not being in the know? Hear spouses say they are having trouble finding new friends or getting out of the house? Remind them that the SSC is here for them!! It's worth $35 just to be on the FB group, in my opinion! All of us are a part of the Membership Committee at this point in the year.
Keep reaching out.
We had a great pilgrim feast! Thanks to everyone who could make it and brought delicious food. For December we will be meeting at my place (email for address) make graham cracker houses. This is a change from the annual cookie exchange since we will be having one at our next meeting. The Evite will be coming soon. It will be on December 17th a Tuesday at 10:00am.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the holiday season!
Happy Holidays! We are looking forward to the spring party. The date and theme are being finalized in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned next month for the announcements so you can mark your calendars.
If you're interested in helping with the spring party email firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks!
Happy Holidays SSC! Look out for an email to participate in the Meet the Member Mondays on the blog! We look forward to hearing about someone new each week.
Also, if anyone has any ideas for a blog post they would like to write, please let Rachel know! Anything from your experience in DC (buying a house, having a baby, great places to visit) to Rotation Location (give us your report on places you've visited) or anything you are passionate about and want to share!
We look forward to hearing from you - please send all emails to email@example.com.
Hello for the Sunshine Committee! We've had quite a year so far! We are looking for anyone who would like to help us spread some cheer and sunshine to sign up for this committee. Once signed up you'll be put on an email list. I will only contact you when there is a need. The most common email you'll get is one for a meal need for families that are welcoming a new baby. This email will be sent out to the whole committee. You just sign up if you are able to help out at that time. There's no obligation!
You don't have to cook a meal, you can bless the families by sending a gift card, you can send a store bought meal also. Some meals can be delivered to the school, some can be delivered to the home. Details will be in each email. Please sign up today, we would love your help!
