          At the meeting of Willard Neighborhood Association on November 15, it
          was collectively decided that there will be a Christmas Celebration.
          We'll get together on our usual third Thursday of the month -- that
          makes it December 20 -- for music, caroling, and potluck sharing. We
          intend to invite residents of Betsy Ross House. We should start
          earlier than our usual meeting time -- 6:00pm instead of 7:00. More
          details will be posted to the website calendar and to this message
          board as they're developed. Hope to see you there !
