At our meeting on December 8th we will feature our annual Show-and-Tell. It's not too early to begin thinking about what you would like to bring and share.
In the past members have brought various items such as: their family trees, pictures of their ancestors, scrapbooks, historic artifacts from their ancestral heritage, ethnic recipes passed down through the generations, traditional costumes worn in the “old country” and many other interesting tidbits of their research. Anything relating to your family history research is of interest to the rest of us. Even if you have nothing to share from your own research, Show-and-Tell is sure to spark your interest when you peruse the offerings of others. It is a time to share fellowship, ask questions, and enjoy learning about the research of others.
There will also be ethnic delights to munch on, a choice of cold or hot apple cider as well as hot chocolate to drink. It is a wonderful way to escape the holiday frenzy and relax with your fellow DCAGS members and their guests.
Members who can attend are invited to bring a treat to share from the country of their origin or of their choice. Cookies, bars, a cold plate of munchies are all welcome. Examples might be: biscotti (Italy), kolaches (Czech Republic), Rugelach (Israel) Pfeffernusse (Germany) etc.
There will be sign-up sheets at the October and November meetings. One sign-up sheet will be for bringing a Show-and-Tell, as we need to know how many tables to set up for the displays. The second sign-up sheet will be for volunteering to bring an “ethnic delight”.
Our Show and Tell meeting promises to be an exciting one so come and bring a friend or two!
