Save the Date: The HPSW Holiday Party – Sunday January 6, 2019

This is an early save the date notice.

The HPSW holiday party and white elephant gift exchange will be

Sunday January 6th – 1pm to 4pm 

The party will be a potluck at Madelyn Katzman’s house on north Capitol Hill (she’s east of Volunteer Park).  

The white elephant can be anything. It doesn’t have to be garden related. You can’t bring back the white elephant you got last year but you can bring back the white elephant you got 2 years ago. And, if you don’t want to, you don’t have to participate in the white elephant gift exchange. Bob says since the party is after Christmas this year you will be able to give away the Christmas gifts you got that you don’t want! And, we have learned, one person’s white elephant is another’s treasured object. 
more information will be sent out nearer the party

Please contact Pamela Perrott at
pamelaperrott@comcast.net or 206 999 3092 for  directions and further information.

Note: that parking in Capitol Hill is notoriously bad, although it is worse near the shopping streets of Broadway etc. and not so bad away from there. But allow for parking further away just in case.
