Johnstown - Kris Kringle

11 January 2018 21:28:46

For anyone who hasn't been to a Johnstown get-together before, you don't have to bring a kris kringle present on Saturday but people attending usually do and it makes a nice part of the occasion. 

So, if you can bring along a small vaguely garden related present, value around €10, please wrap it but don't put your name on it; it's a "secret santa" and the anonymity is all part of the fun.  When we go indoors after the plant swaps (about 12 noon), bring it up to Moya and myself at the table.  We will put your name on one half of a ticket and attach the other half to your gift.  This is to ensure that you don't end up with your own present when names are drawn! 

Enjoy the day and we look forward to seeing you there.

I can assure you all that Joan does the bulk of the work on the Kris Kindle, bringing all the bits and pieces and explaining the process to me  - yet again!!

See you all on Saturday.
