Reminder: DFMA January Meeting One Week Later
The normal meeting schedule for the DFMA is the first Tuesday of each month.
Sometimes that produces awkward results like for our next meeting which would
then fall on January 1st. You probabaly wouldn't have wanted a meeting then
and, of course, Bullock's will be closed on New Year's Day.
So this time we will meet on Tuesday, January 8th. I hope we'll see
you there. Happy New Year!

December 4 Program: DFMA Christmas Party
We are continuing a tradition of having the DFMA pick up the tab for members at our December Christmas Dinner Meeting. The festivities will be at Bullock's Barbecue Restaurant in Durham starting at 6:00 p.m. You will be able to order from the menu. Members can bring one guest — bring your spouse or friend!
This is our Christmas Meeting — In that tradition you may (optionally):
- Bring a Christmas gift to be distributed to needy children through Toys for Tots. If wrapped, mark gender and age range on the outside. If not wrapped, that's fine too. If you have one — a gift bag would work too.
Make a donation. The Club will make its annual Christmas gift, splitting
it between the Food Bank of North Carolina
and the Durham Rescue Mission. We will be passing the "hat" for
personal contributions. Cash contributions will also be split between
the two organizations.
In past years some people have dropped a check in the hat. You can make it out to any charity you like. We can forward it and the cancelled check can be handy at tax time.
But, if you are not in a position to donate anything this year, please come anyway. Or if you are making a special effort through your church or at the office, don’t feel pressured to do more than you really should. Your presence at this dinner is a gift to all of us.
Since this is our annual Christmas Party we won’t have a program as usual. However, we will continue the fun tradition of soliciting “Ham New Year’s Resolutions.” Please join us for some wonderful holiday fellowship.
