Holiday Potluck and Celebration at Williamson Hall

  • 13 Dec 2022
  • 10:00 AM
  • Williamson Hall



The last BGS Holiday Potluck was in December 2019. Little did we know then that COVID would be a pandemic early in 2020.

We will celebrate this year! BGS has survived and is beginning to thrive again. If you feel safe health-wise at an in-person meeting, members-only and a guest, if desired, are invited to celebrate on Tuesday, Dec. 13 by Sharing Genealogy Stories and a meal together.

Sharing Stories: Before we eat, everyone can share any genealogy story with the group about their family or research. Bring an heirloom or other prop to share with the story, as needed.

Silent Auction: This is a fundraiser for BGS. Everyone brings one or more items. For example, items can be gently used, new or white elephants, etc. Throughout the morning, anyone can bid on them on paper. At the end, the highest bidder takes the item home after making the payment to BGS. If your item doesn't sell, you have to take it home.

Potluck: Over the years, we have discovered genealogists are great cooks, too. Please bring something to share - a main dish, salad, dessert, appetizer, pizza, sparkling cider, vegetable tray, or whatever you want to bring. We'll put all the food on serving tables and enjoy a meal together. We don't have a sign-up sheet, but the spread usually all works out. If everyone brings dessert that will be yummy, too.

BGS provides: Coffee and tea will be available, and we will provide plastic utensils, paper plates, bowls and napkins. Please bring your own water bottle.

There are outlets to plug in a Celebration & Potluck Crock Pot. The Williamson kitchen also has a stove, refrigerator and small microwave.

We'll likely finish between 11:30 and Noon, and would appreciate any help you can offer to clean-up and put the Hall back in order. Please email or call BGS, if you could help set-up the Hall or make coffee.
