Holiday Share Faire and Decoration Swap

December 11, 2016, 1:00 – 3:00 PM, Cubberley Community Center, Room D1, 4000 Middlefield, Palo Alto

Make sharing a part of your holiday season!

This time we are asking for you to keep the Goods Share to ONLY seasonal decorations and garden (and related) items.  Our Goods Sharing has gotten a little bit out of control, with many things just left.  We do bring them to Goodwill or FOPAL, but it is a lot of work for our volunteers to find new homes for things.  We prefer to share things with a story with people we know, so that we can use the process to build community.  (This is not to say that we won’t hold a “Freecycle”-style Goods Share in the future – we will, but not every time.)

From 1:15 to 2:15 we will hold a Storytelling Circle.  We ask you to bring a story of the holidays – and there are many holidays clustered around the change of the year! – and share them with your community.  We’re looking for as much diversity as we can find – if you have something from your family’s culture, that would be particularly fine.  We’ll film the storytelling for possible inclusion on our web-site (for all of those who are willing).

From 2:30 to 3:00 we will have a seasonal food Skill Share.  Something easy to make from the produce that’s available here and now.  Stay tuned for details.

Volunteer  We would happy for you to join us. There are many opportunities:  greeting, promotion, organizing, set-up, clean-up and more?  Please send email to and let us know if you can help.

Looking forward to seeing you!
