There is a new(isn) organization of "seniors" at my church. After a recent meeting on "Friendship"…. the group decided to have a casual party…. with people contributing refreshments. The party will be at my house…. tomorrow…. from 4:00 to 6:00. At the recent monthly meeting…. the group decided to follow the pattern of my neighborhoods' "Wine Nights". Following this pattern: every guest brings either (1) a plate of finger food, or (a chilled bottle of wine. Each guest brings their own wine glass (and the hostess provides extras for those who forget). The idea is for the hostess to have "no clean up duties"…. after the party has ended. It will be interesting to see…. how this "party model" works… for an entirely different kind of group. It is a rainy day, here, today. THAT should help me to concentrate on "preparing the house" for tomorrow's party.
