We invite you to the annual DFW Ready Writer Christmas Party on this Saturday December 12th. Becky Yauger, ACFW Vice President and DFW Ready Writer Secretary 2009, will be sharing a devotional that is sure to touch your heart and prepare you for the celebration of Christmas.
We will also be having lunch (Dutch treat). Bring a gift (something writerly—book, writing material, chocolate, cups, teas, etc.) with the value of $15.00 or less, and we will have an old fashion gift exchange (Chinese Gift Exchange).
Hope you will come and join in on the fun.
