Meeting reminder - Dec. 16 Holiday Party

The Oshkosh Area Writers Club will meet at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16 in the lower level conference room at the Oshkosh Public Library. This is our annual holiday party so we won't be doing writing critiques. 

Please bring a wrapped White Elephant gift (something in new/good condition that you already own but never use). The White Elephant gift will be used as a writing prompt for the receiver, if that helps you decide what to bring.

Donuts will be provided but others are welcome to bring a snack to share are well. We'll also like to taking a group photo on the second floor where there are Christmas trees for a back-drop.
