Columbian Hall [map]
6794 Martin Way East
Lacey, WA 98516
Doors open at 11:30am. Festivities begin with the potluck, followed by the annual meeting and the fun-filled white elephant gift exchange. Even if you don’t want to participate in the game, please join us for some holiday cheer!
All are welcome to attend – including family and friends. Non-Foundation members wanting to attend can either join the Foundation for $10/year or pay $5 at the door for one-time admittance into this event.
The Foundation’s handcrafted items, tools and clothing will be available for purchase and may be paid for with cash, check or credit card. These make great holiday gifts!
If you wish to participate in the potluck, please bring a dish to share. Members are also encouraged to bring their own tableware as this is in the spirit of reduce, recycle, reuse. Tableware, coffee and tea will be provided.
If you wish to participate in the gift exchange, please bring a wrapped or bagged gift valued no more than $10 (new or like new).We will be taking turns opening and swapping gifts as they did back in the early 1800’s when white elephant parties started. For those who are new to the white elephant gift exchange, the steps and the rules will be explained at the beginning. Packaging is most important, as many are tempted to pick a gift based on size and wrapping. After selecting a gift, each person must unwrap the gift for all to see. The next person will decide if he or she wants to steal someone else’s gift or take an unwrapped gift.
