Saturday, December 14, 2019

5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Bailey Nurseries, Inc.  (in the HR Building)

1325 Bailey Road 

Newport, MN 55055

Directions:

The main driveway into Bailey's is also a four way stop sign intersection. Turn into the driveway (Opposite Military Road) and take an immediate right and continue up the hill into the HR parking lot. There are about 30 spots to park your car in front of the building, and another dozen or so on the East side of the building on the other side of the HR parking lot. These spaces are at the same level as the door, so if you don't do well with stairs, you may want to park there. If we fill all those spots, there are another 30 or more in front of the Main Office - you'll just have to go up another set of stairs to get to the HR parking lot. There is plenty of parking at this venue

Please reply to Art/Neal/Michael to let them know how many are coming and what you would like to sign up for.

 

Updates on the number of attendees and potluck items will be posted on the website, email list, and in the Facebook group.

There will be The Land the Eagle contest winners announced, the annual MASSY Awards, and Mike will be prepared to accept your dues for the upcoming year. 


We'll also be doing our annual Gift Exchange, so if you want to receive a gift, you have to bring a wrapped one to place under the tree. (Modestly priced and no gag gifts, please)


Also, nominations for club officers will be open through the end of the party.
