|SWC December Meeting - Friday, Dec. 14, 2018|
Our Friday, December 14th meeting will be held at the home of Wor. Andrew Brennan, 219 Glenbrook Road No., Wayzata, MN 55391, with a dinner and afterglow to follow. Please RSVP to the Secretary, by clicking here. We plan a quick installation of officers in a no-fuss ceremony. This is a terrific location for our year-end meeting, and we again look forward to a fine celebration again this year. Thanks to WB Brennan for stepping up. This too, will be our final Stated meeting of the year. The normal schedule will apply; social gathering at 6 (really, at 5:30), with the meeting and installation starting at 7:00. Minutes, a summons and the agenda will be distributed electronically.
We always close the December meeting with friendly conversation, the scent of cinamon and allspice, and lilting English carols around the fire... Nice. And we look forward to philosophical discussions informally around the firepit:
There will be no LEO presentation, due to installation and holiday socializing...

|Boxing Day - Always  December 26th|
An English tradition, Boxing Day is the day after Christmas. As we've done for years, Churchill brothers invite their lodge brothers and a few friends to drop by at late morning or after church for a pint of good cheer at Brits Pub, at 1110 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis. Let's raise a toast at this very relaxed, very British afterglow of the Christmas holiday. Bring your stories and any trailing gifts to share.
