January 9th - International Celebrations
Small group discussions on holidays in our varied countries: why they are celebrated, what is done, what is eaten, and anything else you would like to share. If you want, bring an article to show that typifies that holiday.

January 30th - Craft Sharing
We love doing crafts and this is the day for everyone to share their crafts. We will have tables set up so people can move from table to table to learn a new craft. Think about what you would like to demonstrate. In the past we have featured calligraphy, patchwork, knitting, crochet, origami, and vegetable sculpting.
