Group 48 Holiday Potluck & Write-a-thon

The second Friday of this December is December 10 – Human Rights Day. It’s only fitting that Group 48 continues its annual tradition to host a holiday potluck and Write-a-thon at the December meeting. In addition, there is going to be a special drawing for an autographed copy of Amy Goodman’s book, Breaking the Sound Barrier and a DVD of Amy Goodman interviewing Noam Chomsky on the news program, Democracy Now! in April 2009. Must be present to win!

  1. I’m definitely going to be there! I will bring a warm dish, probably cheesy broccoli casserole. I will also bring a dessert, like a pie or cake, and plates and napkins.

    I will bring cards and writing stuff though I can’t say for sure how many stamps I’ll have; I’ll bring what I can.

    Looking forward to seeing you all, and maybe some new faces!


    • Hi Marylou,

      Thanks for volunteering to bring food and greeting cards. We won’t have much time for action letters because there are quite a few cases highlighted by the Write-a-thon. The main goal is to put focus on those cases so as to generate a high number of letters and cards by AI sections around the world.

  2. I can bring a dessert, but now I’m not sure about other things. I’ll write again. Thanks to those bringing main dishes! mary Loos

  3. I will bring some plates, bowls, cups and napkins. I don’t seem to have any disposable utensils.

    I will also bring apple cider and chocolate covered popcorn.

    As for the Write-a-thon, I will bring greeting cards, paper, envelopes and a few copies of the cases.

  4. I am new, but I want to be involved in this write-a-thon. I will bring sandwiches, stamps, paper, two copies of the cases, and hopefully my husband.
