Saturday, Dec. 9th, 2017 - 6:00 PM
Hosts: David & Patti Duthie

Our annual Christmas Party will be held on Saturday, December 9th at the Shrine Center, 25100 SW Parkway Ave., Wilsonville. The Shrine Center is conveniently located just off of I-5 in North Wilsonville (north of Costco - see our website activities calendar for a map.) Social hour starts at 6:00 PM, and dinner will be about 7:00. Our room will be the same as last year - on the second floor.  You can enter the building by our own side entrance on the Salish Lane side - there is a ramp leading up to the upstairs hallway and our room.  If you need the elevator, use the main entrance.  The Shriners have re-decorated and re-carpeted our room since we were there last, I think you’ll like the improvements.

We’ll have a no-host bar with beer, wine and mixed drinks.  Our Shriner friend Ralph Jubb will once again bartend and prepare everything for dinner.  If you’d like, please feel free to bring hors d’oevres or a dessert - they won’t be provided by the Shriners.  We always end up with a wonderful assortment of both.

The room rental will again be waived for us, and all labor (room setup and teardown, bartending, and cooking/serving) will be donated by the Shriners. In return, the Shriners ask that you bring a cash or check donation of any amount for the “Ladder of Smiles” (the charity of the Association of Shrine Oriental Bands of North America, which has donated over $2.5 million to the Shrine Hospitals. 100% of all donations directly benefit the hospitals.) Or if you prefer, bring a new unwrapped toy (no stuffed animals please - they are not allowed) which will be taken to the Portland Shriners Children’s Hospital and given to the kids.  The Shriners will also provide the food to us at cost, which will be paid for by PTOA.  There is no charge to PTOA members to attend the party. 

Brenda and Tom are unable to coordinate the raffle this year, so we ask people to bring raffle items, just like at the monthly meetings. All raffle proceeds will be given to the Shriners, so please bring a raffle item with you.

PLEASE RSVP to me via email HERE or  503-seven five seven-6532 so we can make sure that we have enough food and places to sit.

We hope to see you there!
