Club Members are asked to bring a choice of Appetizers, Salads, Desserts. Please sign up on the club's web site EVENTS page (cavecreeksaddleclub.org) no later than Sunday Dec 10, so we have a head count for the amount of food we'll need.

Also, after your last name on the sign up page, please put down what appetizer, salad or dessert you plan to bring. This will help to prevent duplications. Probablywill need some to bring Rolls/Bread along with some dishes too.

Our gift exchange will be a little different this year. Instead of a gift we thought it would be more fun to exchange Christmas / Holiday desserts (pies, chocolates, breads, special coffees, etc. Desserts should be wrapped and be no more than $10. Each member is also asked to bring one unwrapped gift for a child to be donated to Toys for Tots.
