To celebrate another turn of the Wheel, the joint UCL and Red Grail Yule party will be celebrated on Saturday, December 17. This is a laid back time with a gift exchange game. Bring a wrapped gift that is recycled, repurposed, or upcycled. If the gift is for a child or adult specifically, please mark that on the wrapping. Potluck is welcome. Individually wrapped items are requested. Bring your own plate to avoid kitchen use. Disposables will be available. There will be some items for purchase to fund our Red Grail ministry since we are separate from the UCL budget.
