2011 ATC Holiday Party!

Written by Tomoya Akashi

2011 was filled with dramas. A retina was torn, and a flying racquet barely missed a player. A year like this should end with vicious rumors and laughter at ATC Holiday Party! Please feel free to dress up or down, however you like it!

Date: December 3 (Sat)
Location: Mekong River Restaurant, 215 East 6th Street
Time: Cocktail at 6:30PM, Dinner at 7:00PM
Fee: Free for all members, $15 for guests
Sign up:

(please choose either “Meat” or “Vegetable”)

It is a BYOB event (even beer and wine!), so if you enjoy adult beverages, please bring them with you. Soft drinks and mixers can be purchased at the restaurant, and ATC will provide setups.

We’ll once again collect unwrapped toys for a toy drive and play the ever-so-popular White elephant (gift exchange) game during the evening. If you choose to participate in the game, please bring a gift of around $15.00 in value.

We’ll also give out awards to outstanding members and announce next year’s board members at the dinner.

We look forward to seeing you and spending fun time together.
