    Hello, everyone!

    A few reminders…

    DiY Santa and Holiday Party

    This Friday is the DiY Santa unveiling, and holiday party.  We’ll do a little potluck, plus the Asylum will pitch in some snacks and hot foods!  Come on by after 6pm, and we’ll do the gift unveiling around 8pm.

    If you’re going to bring something, make a note here in this Google form.   Thanks!

    Folks can drop off their secret gifts in my space (#3, near the multipurpose room) any time after 10am to keep from being spotted.  :)
