Our annual Christmas Party will be held on Saturday, December 1st at the Shrine Center, 25100
SW Parkway Ave., Wilsonville. It’s a little earlier than usual due to schedule conflicts, but it’ll be a
festive way to start off the Holiday season! 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 7:15.

We’ll have a no-host bar with beer, wine and mixed drinks.  Our Shriner friend Ralph Jubb will
once again 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, 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. 

We had a terrific raffle last year, so we again ask people to bring raffle items, just like at the
monthly meetings. All raffle proceeds will be given to the Shriners - last year $551.00 was raised
just from the raffle.  So please bring a raffle item with you if you can.

PLEASE RSVP to me 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!
