It's time to get excited about another epic NOTIS Holiday Party!
Join us on Saturday, December 7, 2019
at the Highland Community Center
14224 Bel-Red Road in Bellevue
(BUS ROUTES LISTED. Please read the ENTIRE invitation!)
The party will begin at 3:00PM, directly after the NOTIS Annual Meeting to be held from 2:00PM - 3:00PM. Please watch your mail for your official Annual Meeting invitation.
The Highland Community Center will be this year's venue for our festive merriment! Giant log posts in the main hall give it an inviting lodge feel, and we have double the capacity we had last year. So let's do our usual great job of sharing our sumptuous cooking with each other, celebrating another fantastic year of working with great people, and meeting new friends! Please bring a main dish, salad, appetizer, dip, or dessert to share. Also, please wear your most festive holiday sweater and/or your reindeer antlers!
Back by popular demand! KARAOKE! We hope our 'songbirds' from last year come back to grace us with their incredible renditions of their favorite songs! We invite all other aspiring songbirds to grab the microphone!
Cookie Contest - Are you ready to showcase your baking prowess? Last year's entries were DELICIOUS, with the mighty, four-inch wide Chocolate Rad winning the prize. Will your cookie win this year? Put on those oven mitts and bake your masterpiece to enter the contest!
SKITS? PERFORMANCES? Are there any Thespians, dancers, jugglers, quick-change artists, spoken word poets in TWO languages, or other talented NOTIS members? Entertain us! There is a giant stage at our venue! We would welcome your creativity!
GRAND PRIZE! At the event, we'll have a raffle for several really fun gift cards and prizes, including a grand prize of a year-long NOTIS membership!
