We've got bells that JINGLE JANGLE JINGLE!!! YES, Good Gentles, you read right!! JINGLES IS BAAAACK!!! 'Course, it never actually left...but those are clappers under the table now! There are a host of fun things being planned including a sumptuous Feast, the "Silver Tongued Devil", Family/Kid centered games & crafts, a performance by the West Kingdom Choir, a Silent Auction to benefit fixture events with Southern Shores, the Viking Gift Exchange ($10-max per item), the "Toys for Tots" donation opportunity (a NEW and unwrapped, unopened-in-the-original-box toy), the Brick Spoon competition; subject is "Playing with Your Food" (create a food item that is edible and can also either be played with, or represents a game or a form of entertainment), the infamous Table Decorating Contest; theme is "Birds of a Feather" (use either birds or feathers to help our Southern Shores Gull feel loved and all warm n'fuzzy for the Holidays). We will also have a playfiil fighter tourney with prizes and silly quests, a re-vamping of a few of last year's fun games and some as yet to be determined revelry and/or classes. And last but not least, as JINGLES is now back on the menu, the Best Use of Bells competition is too!!!!! (bells on clothing, an item made out of bells, a decoration using bells, etc)...
