BVAA Holiday Party & Reception 2019


It’s that time of year! The time to celebrate!

Our Annual Holiday Party for 2019 will be held on Tuesday, December 17th from 6-9pm. We’ll start from 6:00-6:30pm with our discussion of the group’s upcoming events, and then go into the party time.

Note we are having this year’s party AT A RESTAURANT so we can fit us all. It’ll be in a private room so we can talk, laugh, and have fun!

Willow Brook Restaurant
16 Hastings Street
Mendon, MA

Food will be buffet style so everyone can mingle, talk, and relax. Here’s what’s on the menu:

Baked haddock
Yankee pot roast
Chicken parmesan
Oven roasted potatoes
Butternut squash
Tossed salad

Bob Evans is bringing in a delightful decorated sheet cake for dessert!

The total cost for the evening including tip and tax and everything is $27 each. For members, the BVAA will subsidize part of the cost so that the per-person cost for members is $20 each. Please RSVP for yourself for now. Once we’re sure how many members we have attending, we’ll then open it up to guests. The guest would pay the full $27.

You can drop off cash or check at the gallery any Saturday, you can use PayPal online to, or you can snail-mail a check to:

PO Box 136
Whitinsville, MA 01588

Please make sure to email in your reservations to us by FRIDAY DECEMBER 6th MIDNIGHT so we know what room we have for guests. Once we know the member count we’ll put out the call for guests if we still have room. Please be timely. The restaurant need time to plan out their meals!

Yankee Swap
Our BVAA Holiday Parties feature a fun Yankee Swap gift exchange. You can participate or not participate as you wish. If you’d like to join in this fun project, bring a gift-wrapped gift of $10 or less in value. The way we do it is we put all the wrapped gifts in a pile. We hand out numbers so every person gets a number. Whoever is number 1 chooses a gift, unwraps it, and shows it to the group. Person 2 then goes and unwraps a gift. They can keep it or swap it with anybody else who has a gift out. It keeps going until the end, at which point person 1 can choose anything they want. It’s a lot of fun :).

We look forward to seeing everyone!

  2. Hi,
    I would love to go…It is Sunday December 8th.
    Am I too late to sign up?
    What is needed at a Yankee Swap?
    Is there a price range for the present?
    Is there a hint of what to look for?
    Thank you,
