December 2018

There will be no regular meeting in December. Instead, GNPS will hold its Holiday Party from noon to 3 pm at The Commons (also known as the Volunteer Center), 501 E 13th Street, Silver City. Elroy Limmer will provide the customary pork roast – otherwise it’s pot luck. Iced tea will be provided and the hot water heater will be there for tea and coffee – for other beverages BYO. Please bring your own plates, glasses and utensils and a dish to share.
