We have finally reached December in this year of Trek. We celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek, the 30th Anniversary of the USS Kelly (our parent chapter) and the 20th Anniversary of the USS Ticonderoga as a club. But the fun is not over yet. December is very busy with holidays and parties. So we limit ourselves during this hectic month to a few items.
First is our regular monthly meeting. Wednesday, December 14th at 7:00pm. We are returning to the Roy Library (2039 West 4000 South) and we will be in activity center two. Every December we hold our gift exchange. (Think white elephant with a Star Trek twist). Here is some information from Captain Stark about our Purple Mugato gift exchange.
-Gift must be clean and complete – no missing pieces, no used hygiene items. (Think something that you wouldn’t mind winding up with when all is said and done.)
-Gift must be family-friendly.
-Gift must be wrapped and anonymous, and please don’t spend any more than $10.00 if you are making a purchase (creating items is encouraged).
-Each person that wishes to participate in the gift exchange must bring a gift.
-Don’t forget, if the gift itself (not the wrapping) is the same color as our mugato, you get a treat!
Also at the meeting don’t forget to turn in your $10 for the 2017 Seventh Fleet Calendar. This is going to be the sixth straight year that the fleet has produced a calendar for the Star Trek family.
On Friday, December 16th Captain Stark will be hosting the Senior Officer’s Meeting at Starbase 40. This will be at 7:00pm. Please brown-bag/drive through your dinner for the night. Captain Stark has a LOT of information from the recent Seventh Fleet Council meeting to go over.
New Years Eve we will be holding our annual party. This will be at the home of Lt. Frank Buck in Layton. The food theme this year will be Italian dishes. Please see your department chief for food assignments.
