Please join us for our annual holiday party on December 7, 2013. We will be back at the 1st Unitarian Society of Denver, 1400 Lafayette, where we hold our regular meetings. Parking is scarce, so plan on carpooling, walking, biking or taking public transportation if you are able. There is a small lot down Lafayette near Colfax on the west side of the street that has a few spots for the church- first come first serve!
Please bring a dish to share, possible from your country of service. Please remember to bring appropriate serving utensils for your dish. This is always a festive and fun way to bring in the holiday season with your fellow RPCVs. Come join the fun! (We are also planning an after-party at Kinga's Lounge following the holiday party for those that want to continue to socialize)
Also, we want our event to be as close to ZERO WASTE as possible! That means we would love for you to bring your own flatware, bowls, and plates. We will have some extra for those that forget, but it would be great to see us cut down on our waste from this event.
