Christmas Family Potluck Dinner 12-10-2018

All - just a reminder that the Family Christmas Potluck Dinner will be held at the normal meeting place - 910 Wood Ave in Rapid City starting at 6 pm.  If  you need to warm food, the kitchen will be open at 5 pm.  If you are helping decorate the tables and the tree, the room will be open at 5 pm also.  Hope to see you there!   
----------------------------------------------
The December 2018 general meeting was held on Monday December 10th, 2018 in the basement of the Black Hills Lutheran School at 910 Wood Ave in Rapid City at 6 pm.  It was our annual Family Christmas Potluck.  
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE:  There was a slight location change - we relocated to the basement of the Black Hills Lutheran School at 910 Wood Ave.  This was because of a scheduling conflict  - a concert by the students of the school was planned over a year ago, but was inadvertently omitted from the schedule in the Church Office.  So with a quick reset, the potluck was moved to the basement.  Many thanks to Rick Weisbeck for standing out in the parking lot in the sub-freezing temperatures to re-direct people to park behind the school and leave room for concert attendees to park in the front of the church.  Many thanks to Lacey Hoogland, the Administrator of the Black Hills Lutheran School for offering us the alternate location and for recruiting her students to help us setup in the basement.  So the potluck went well.  Food was great, tree looked really nice, and all had a good time.
