Come join us for our annual holiday party at Quincy’s Bar and Grill on THURSDAY!
When? Thursday, Dec. 10 from 6:30-9:30
Where? 2047 N West St. (http://www.quincyswichita.net/).
What? Holiday fun, i.e. white elephant/grab bag + help for those in need (see below for instructions about the white elephant and donations )
Why? Thanksgiving and December holidays can get stressful with family (and friends). You know, like when great-uncle Joe starts ranting about how he has all the answers to “fix” our nation’s problems! Or when cousin Betty Sue can’t figure out why LGBT folks need the right to get married OR… well, you get the picture. Enjoy an evening out and take a break from the hustle/bustle/stress/etc. around like-minded people who believe in equality for every Kansan!
The board will be providing tasty snacks – the bar will provide…well a bar (i.e. B(uy)YOB). In the spirit of the holidays please think about bringing non-perishable food items to be donated to the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry and/or socks (coats, mittens, etc.) for those less fortunate. It’s cold outside and if you didn’t know this – socks (yes, socks!) are one of the items most needed for those who are housing challenged.
What’s a white elephant exchange? If you don’t know you are in for a treat and check out the concept https://www.whiteelephantrules.com/. If you plan on buying your gift, please remember that the idea behind the exchange is HUMOR, with this, you should not purchase an expensive gift. A $10 limit would be reasonable.
We hope to see you at Quincy’s Bar and Grill. But if you can’t come and want to go ahead and renew your dues for 2016 ($25 indiv; $45 family; $10 student), see our website: www.eqks.org or send us a check to the address below. We’re gearing up for a strong fight this legislation season since the legalized discrimination bills are often a topic of discussion these days (you know, the so-called “religious freedom” bills).
Happy holidays to you and yours!
