VIRTUAL ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY:
David Sarnoff Radio Club annual Holiday party moves to Zoom at 6PM
on Tuesday, December 15th, with a Chinese-food theme.
Bring your Christmas Sweater, a Hanukkah Hat, or a Festivus
Buddy-pole and join the fun. The club meeting at 7:30 has a special
speaker, and we will meet via Webex for that, but before then let’s
try to recreate our annual holiday event.
Start with Chinese food… whether you roast your own Peking Duck, or
order take-out or simply have tea with dinner, food gets us in the
spirit. Feel free to eat during the event (just remember to mute!)
No present exchange this year, but we will be reading fortune cookies
as a social activity. Make sure your camera is working and wear an
appropriate holiday outfit– you can even re-use those 2020 glasses!
We will call on everyone and provide a personalized Internet fortune.
Pets and plush animals are welcome as we wish each other happy
holidays of all sorts.
Link to the pre-meeting party will come out Monday. Zoom even allows
viewing if you don’t have a camera… connect audio by phone.
