Christmas Party!

It's November now, and we finally have the hotel information for the Christmas Party this year!

We'll have a really abbreviated meeting starting at 4:00 (everyone is welcome!), and the potluck dinner will start around 6:00pm.

We'll be supplying turkey and ham, the rest is up to you guys! Wink

Also be sure to bring out your donations for the annual holiday charity auction!

So mark your calendars and send a note to Vonn Gants (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) with what you are bringing.

The Blood Bus is coming to LibertyCon!

Blood Assurance Flyer for LibertyCon 28In "Charity News" we wanted to let you know that Blood Assurance would like to bring their bus on down to the convention for donations.

They're planning on being on site  Saturday afternoon between 10:30am and 3:30pm.

However before they do, they need to have people sign up online.  They're asking for at least 30 people to make the trip worthwhile, so we're asking you guys to give up a half hour out of the weekend to help them out.  (More than 30 is obviously what we're shooting for though)

All of you know how vital blood donation is, and every pint could go a long way to save someone's life.

Please think about donating next weekend, and if you can please visit Blood Assurance's Online Scheduling

And just to spice things up a bit, we're going to be giving away a LibertyCon 29 pre-registration to one of the donors!  We'll draw the name at Closing Ceremonies on Sunday.

X-Mas Party Update from Vonn

Just got this from Vonn about the Christmas Party... you do have that marked on your calendars, right? December 6 down at the Choo-Choo! -------------------------------------- Happy Holidays from the Hospitality Staff. We hope the season finds everyone in high spirits. Time seems to be flying by. It’s hard to believe there are only three weeks left until the Chattanooga Fan combined Christmas Party. I don’t know about you but I’m getting more and more excited the closer we get. As in years past, this is a potluck event. With dishes such as Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Mac n’ Cheese, Rolls, Cakes, and Ham swirls, the table is shaping up to be incredible. If you plan on attending, please send a note to Vonn Gants (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) with what you are bringing. For those of you that have trouble deciding what to bring, the Thanksgiving preparations are a great time to decide. Many dishes freeze well, so as you create your favorite dish, make an extra set to freeze. The Choo-Choo will be giving a discounted price again this year. If you are planning to stay at the Choo Choo, let them know you are with the LibertyCon Christmas Party to receive the discount. With that, we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and look forward to seeing you at the Christmas party!
