WAGS Annual Holiday Party
12:30 pm to 2:30 pm
Whittier Masonic Lodge, 7604 Greenleaf Ave., Whittier CA
Our WAGS Annual Holiday Tradition continues!
Christmas is coming and it's time for our Annual December "Show & Tell."  Share your genealogical successes and brickwall-busting stories of 2019.  We’ll celebrate together all our hard work.  Sign up to speak for 5 to 10 minutes.   Contact our Program Chairs  if you would like to "Show and Tell."
 
This year, we are encouraging WAGS members and WAGS friends to contribute to a dessert pot luck  before we begin the Show and Tell Presentations at 1:00 pm.  Whether you have a favorite family dessert that has been passed down for generations, or a a new holiday favorite treat you would like to try out - bring a sweet treat to share as we enjoy the Show and Tell presentations.  WAGS will provide additional desserts and beverages.  If you are unable to bring a dessert, and still want to contribute to the pot luck, WAGS will gladly accept a recommended $3 donation to help defray our costs.
