Social half hour and Silent Auction at 5:30pm, presentations begin at 6 pm
Ruggles and Baskes
We hope that you will join us for our annual Holiday Gala, which will feature an especially full smorgasbord of holiday treats for your dining and drinking pleasure. We will continue our tradition of pairing this party with our “Members’ Night,” which allows our members to showcase a special item in their personal collections. In the past, we’ve enjoyed hearing about maps, atlases, globes, and “cartifacts”—old, new, borrowed, and blue (yes, we have seen blueprints). You will be given five to ten minutes to talk about your item, which we can display on an easel; you may also use the projector to make a PowerPoint presentation or display a pdf image.
The Holiday Gala will also include a Silent Auction of any items that you may wish to donate to the Society—the full value of which is tax-deductible! To help us assemble our program, please email us by December 12 with details about any item you would like to present to the group and/or donate for the auction.
Our meetings are open to the public, but to help defray expenses, non-members are asked for a small donation at the door.
