We have had a very exciting and successful year. It is time now to once again join together for our Annual Post Christmas Party on December 19th. Details for the party were mailed to all members and requests for reservations are still arriving. Have you R.S.V.P.’ed?
We gather at 6 p.m. for cocktails and a social hour. There will be music and an open no cost bar for all post members and their guest.
Dinner is catered again this year. Our post cooks get the night off and get to sit down with you and their families as we feast on prime rib and roast chicken and all the fixin’s. We’ll also have dessert and beverages.
The dinner will conclude with Christmas sing-a-longs. We have a few members who will lead us back to the songs of our youth as we all join in to sing in celebration of Christmas.
While we are waiting on dinner you can enjoy our cocktail hour. We will have a screen up in the bar area displaying scenes of post activities during the last year. There was a lot of work keeping the post up, working with scouts, post events, meetings, repairing equipment, cutting grass, cooking, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, the Chapel Hill Christmas Parade, local community activities, and more. We are proud of what we have done and hope the photos encourage more members to suit up for the extra duty required to make our Post our Post Home.
You will have a chance to bid on items in our silent auction and live auction during the social hour. No, you are not required to bid or participate in the auctions. But, if you do, you will have an opportunity to bid on donated items as a fundraiser for the post. Be generous. It’s a fundraiser.
Are you new to a live auction? We have Mr. E. B. Harris of Warrenton as our auctioneer. The auction is part entertainment and part showmanship. It is meant to be a fun time for all and some members will go home with some outstanding buys. But, be forewarned, it goes fast and if you blink or take a nap during the bidding, you may miss out on a great deal.
The auctioneer will demonstrate the process and hold a sample auction. He’ll also warn you not to tug on your ear, scratch your nose, cough for attention, tilt your hat, or scream out “Yo!” Not to worry, most participants in the live auction are used to a good old down home, Carolina auction.
