ELE, ELE, ELE Moscow Christmas Party 2011

On December 23, 2011, American Erin Bouma will speak on Christmas Times Experiences, followed by A CHRISTMAS PARTY!

MAKE A CHRISTMAS TREAT FOR THE PARTY?

Please bring something to share. Women might make something tasty: sweet and/or salty things to eat (eg cookies, cheese straws, cakes, etc) or other things you might like (think to make for 7-10 persons), and men might bring wine (no strong spirits please), fruits, and such.

Come to spend time talking, perhaps playing some games, enjoying food and drink, in what will hopefully be a Christmas atmosphere of music, scents, candle lights, good spirits. For ideas on what to make see: COME AND HELP MAKE AND ENJOY A PLEASANT ELE CHRISTMAS PARTY!!!
