"Confabulation-Member Images to Share"
by Chris Germain, MNEC-Pam Lintner, MNEC-Susan Mosser, HonPSA, HonNEC
Monday, December 18, 7:30 /PM

The Holiday Confabulation is a fun get together. It is a long-standing tradition when we share a night of mingling, good food, a little libation, and members beautiful or fun images. This evening is meant for the members to get to know one another a little better. You are all invited to bring images to share with your fellow members. Please bring ten to fifteen images or a short - one to three minute or one song- minishow on a CD or a thumb drive. The images can be on a subject of your choice. Candid shots of fellow GLPA members are always fun. The images will be run on the big screen with some of the hall lights on, as we mingle and munch on the refreshments. You are all invited to talk and visit while we share the images in a casual atmosphere. The images will start at about 8:00 P.M. to give us a bit of time to mingle, do Charlie’s free Christmas raffle, and eat a few munchies. This is the one night you can bring refreshments into the hall. You will also get a free ticket to Charlie’s raffle for some fun door prizes.

Please bring a small amount of a desert, munchies, or hors d'oeuvres to share with everyone. The hall will be decorated by Chris Germain, MNEC, with a little help from Santa's elves.

Come down in your holiday red and wish your friends a great new year for 2018.

Confabulation Night Fundraising Plea

Also a long standing tradition is the end of the year fundraising. The membership has always been very generous on this night. We realize we just had a fundraising project for the track lighting and appreciate that many of you donated to that fund. Thanks again to all who made a donation. However if you missed that plea or print lights were not your thing, here is a way for you to support the club and its projects to upgrade and maintain the building. As most of you know, the club just upgraded the microphones and stereo equipment and rewired the hall for them. The cost of that project was approximately 8,000 dollars taken directly from the building fund.

During the Confabulation, on a table down front near the podium, there will be a decorated basket, special holiday envelopes, and a tray of very high end fancy chocolates. Please bring a check or a few extra dollars to contribute to the building fund. Drop the envelope in the basket and then grab a chocolate. We normally raise over 3000 dollars on this night. If you are or were a GE employee remember we get matching funds from the GE Foundation. Please make sure you go to the GE Foundation page to list your donation with them when you give us the check and tell us that you did it, so we can go in and verify the donation to get the matching funds.

If you donate cash please put your name on the envelope soyou can get the tax deduction. Remember, if you want to get that donation in for tax purposes, now is the time to make it. If you will not be at the Confabulation Night feel free to mail in your end of year donations in any amount. Every little bit helps replenish the fund for the projects completedMail your donation to
