DATE: December 15, 2018, Florida Chapter, Mystery Writers of America Luncheon Meeting
GUEST SPEAKER: Michael Joy (starring as the pirate gift giver)
PROGRAM: Happy Holidays, FMWA Chapter!
Program: It’s our annual Holiday Party, come to have fun. For this month only, you may invite a guest (or two) for $25! Our luncheon will be a holiday-themed meal, and you’ll be able to enjoy a complimentary glass of red or white wine with it. We’ll also be holding our Pirate Gift Exchange. If you’d like to participate, bring a present with a value of no more than $25 (no books, please – we’re writers, we have plenty of them already!). Gifts should be placed in a gift bag only to speed up the opening process! Guests who want to participate in the gift exchange should bring a present, as well.
Holiday Costume Contest! Attendees are encouraged to dress in their favorite holiday attire! It can be outrageously tacky or sublimely elegant, as long as it fits the holiday season. A winner will be picked for best costume and win a $50 certificate for Murder On The Beach Bookstore!
