Holiday Cheer: Yankee Swap and Ugly Sweater Contest

    Join us for a fun afternoon Wednesday, December 9th at 12:45pm (Snowdate: Thursday, December 10th at 12:45pm)
    for a Yankee Swap and Ugly Sweater Contest. Limited to 14 cars. Register early to ensure your spot. Each participant
    will drop off their wrapped gift (worth approx. $10.00) to the attendee and park their car in the designated spot. For safety, all cars will be 6 feet apart and all participants will be required to wear a mask. For those of you who are not familiar with a Yankee Swap, here is what you need to know to participate. Everyone wanting to participate brings a
    wrapped gift worth $10.00. If you would like to participate, but can’t afford a gift, please call (860)434-1605 ext. 240
    and let us know. Be creative, it should be a gift that others would like to own. When you bring your gift. you will pick a number. 1 through however many people. The more people that come the “funner” it is! The first person picks a gift and unwraps it. Then the second person picks a gift or takes the one that the first person picked. If the second person
    chooses the first person’s gift, the first person picks another gift and unwraps it. The game continues until the last
    person picks a gift.
    In addition, pictures will be taken of all members that wear an ugly sweater that day and will be posted for people to vote on which they like the most. If you can’t make the Yankee Swap, but still wish to enter the Ugly Sweater Contest, call us at (860)434-1605 ext. 240 to set up a time (before that day) to have your picture taken outside to be entered.
    The winner will be awarded a $50.00 Gift Certificate from Flanders’ Fish Market in East Lyme CT. A special thank you to
    Flanders’ Fish Market for sponsoring the Ugly Sweater Contest!!
