SWMAS member Christmas Party

Our yearly Christmas Party is fast approaching and rumor has it that Santa will be bringing some unusual fish and plants for our silent auction. All  members are asked to bring some goodies to share and it doesn’t have to be cookies/pastries- it can be relish dishes, dips, etc.

    Cheers and Blessings,
        Bob Dempsey
