Celebrate the Holidays with Your LC Friends!

Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2016: Holiday Party at Red, Wine & Brew – Free for Members
5:30 p.m. Red, Wine & Brew
9620 Old Johnnycake Ridge Road, Mentor Ohio (across from Lowe’s)

 RSVP by December 9 

White elephant with presentsYou won’t want to miss this FREE event to thank you for being a valued member of our organization! Mark your calendars now for this fun happy hour at Red, Wine & Brew, to be held in their upstairs party room. Enjoy free appetizers and a cash bar.

The highlight of the night will be our White Elephant Gift Exchange. We ask everyone to bring a wrapped white elephant gift. This gift is not something you buy, but something you have in your home that you don’t want, don’t need, or don’t like. It could be that ugly ceramic bowl from your Aunt Judy, or a set of beer glasses someone gave you…and you don’t drink beer. This exchange is always humorous and fun!

ALSO – there will be door prizes from Lake Communicators, and hopefully, from all of you as well! PLEASE search your company cupboards for giveaways items that you can share.

Spouses or friends are welcome, but will be required to pay $20 for admission.

Registration: RSVP by Dec. 9

Hello, Lake Communicators!

We’ve had a great year, and it’s gone by so fast. We are looking forward to some great new programming next year.

One of the biggest changes the board made this year was the decision to give our members TWO free meetings each year, as a way to give more value to each of you.

The “social event” in August at the Captains Game was free, and so is the Holiday Party on December 13th! Come and enjoy great appetizers and our White Elephant Gift Exchange. Cash bar is on you.

Can’t wait to see you all…come and bring a guest or a spouse. (Non-members must pay $20.)
