The Main Event: Trivial Pursuits XXIV

 What a fun day it was!  My first time coordinating this event.  We had six wonderful teachers with great projects for everyone to learn, a delicious lunch and lots of snacks that the members brought to share.  Also, see below, the entries to the envelope contest.  They were amazing.  The contributions to the White Elephant table and gift bags were overwhelming and generous.  I believe it was a success.
The finished banner over the lunch buffet put together by  Laura Bernabei and helpers Joselle Kryder and RobinTimm.
