The Tall Club of Milwaukee is billing it’s annual holiday party as its New Years Party this year, currently advertised on meetup for Saturday Jan 6th. Please direct friends and prospects to that page so that it looks like we have a lot of people coming than just shared amongst friends. https://www.meetup.com/Milwaukee-Talls/events/245757035/

Barry already bought the ham and doesn’t want to eat it all himself. So we are having a party and he says:

As scheduled before, it will be held at my house in Menomonee Falls and follow the same pattern as in the past.

The party will start with drinks and appetizers around 6:30pm. Dinner will be served around 8:00pm with the White Elephant Gift Exchange occurring around 10:00pm.

There is no cost for attending the party if you bring a dish to pass. TCM will supply the main course of baked ham and all the drinks.

Please call me to RSVP and to discuss what food item you will be bringing to pass. I will also then give you the address and directions to my house if you need them. I hope to see you all.

Merry Christmas and a fantastic new year.

The Tall Club of Milwaukee/MadTown Talls will turn the latter’s Oktoberfest event into a “Gathering” as Barry Umbs has described as a redesigned TCI Weekend with less overhead for the local club.  This will be held the weekend of September 23, 2017, likely including tours of the Harley Davidson Museum, a fish fry Friday night and a brunch Sunday. Watch this space for more details.

A draft was distributed at the Tall Clubs International Convention in Portland about a week ago. When we work out the details and have a hotel on board, we will distribute a new flyer for this event.
