  • 6:45 p.m.: Dinner Members can sign up for pot-luck, other food items, and helpers. Please don't sign up for non-food supplies as there are leftover items from last year yet to be inventoried. We'll update you with those needs as soon as we can.
  • 8:20 p.m.: Raffles Begin: only members in good standing may enter the raffle
  • 9+ p.m.: cleanup and loading of food and raffle items

At 8:20 p.m., the raffle opens. Each bidder places ticket(s) in cups next to the items they desire. The bidder must be present to win. No items can be held or shipped.
