Dec. 14:  Our annual birthday tribute to Jane Austen and special Christmas celebration. We will welcome special guest Justin Newell, Art Historian, Fine Artist: Painter and Photographer to discuss British artists who were Austen contemporaries including John Constable, Sir Thomas Lawrence and Joseph Mallord William Turner and, as a contrast, William Blake.

As usual we will enjoy a special festive meal featuring a baked ham and all the trimmings. Please bring a savoury dish to accompany the meal or a sweet offering to add to the birthday cake served with wine for the birthday toast.

Anyone available to come early to help out with the luncheon set up please do so. And, if you can stay a bit later to join in the clean-up, it’s always appreciated.

An extra added attraction on this special day will be a fundraising prize draw coordinated by Pam Ottridge so please bring a little extra change for tickets ($2.00 each or 3 for $5.00). And consider donating a gift-wrapped items for the donation table. Questions? Contact Pam at
