THE ARCHAEOLOGIST Vol. 12, December, 2013 Excerpts.

This month's newsletter has been emailed to members in good standing, so if you haven't received your copy, please let us know!

Vol. 12, December 2013

Chapter meetings are held on the third Friday of each month except July, August & November, at the Mulbury House Senior Center located at 62-70 West Main Street, Middletown, NY 10940. All are welcome.

President’s Message
I am happy to say I am glad to be back for the December meeting after missing both September and October. I hope all of you look forward to and can attend the Holiday Party and grab-bag event. It is always a lot of fun. If you are attending and bringing food or drinks to the party, please let me know so I can make sure we have everything we need. 

Holiday Party Grab-Bag
The December meeting will feature the Holiday potluck dinner and the Grab-Bag.
** Please let Dave and Priscilla know what you are bringing so we can 
make sure there will be a variety of food and drinks at the party.
Here are the rules for the grab-bag:
1. You can attend the meeting and not participate in the grab-bag.
2. Anyone who wishes to participate in the grab-bag needs to contribute a gift.
3. Although archaeological themes are welcome, other gift ideas are also acceptable such as baked items. In other words, simply use your imagination.
4. We are suggesting the value of the gift be up to $10.
5. All gifts need to be wrapped and identified as to gender specific if needed.
6. All participants draw a number.
7. Number 1 goes first followed by consecutive numbers.
8. Upon taking a gift it needs to be opened and shown to the group.
9. Following number 1 each of the other participants can either take a gift from the table or from one of the other participants with a lower number, however you cannot take the same gift back twice in the same turn.
10. If your gift is taken you can go back to the table and take another 
gift, or take a gift from another person.
11. After all the numbers are completed and gifts opened, the person with number one can exchange their gift with anyone they choose.
12. All participants are encouraged to take a gift from another person 
if they like that gift. This is what makes it more interesting. So don’t be bashful.

Once again dues are due for calendar year 2014! Please contact our treasurer, Jon Leonard. Or you can pay your dues at the monthly meeting. Checks should be made out to IOCCNYSAA and need to be in before April in order to receive the 2014 State Bulletin.
Lab Sessions:
Laboratory work parties will begin soon to process this season’s field work. Stay tuned for announcements.


Happy Holidays!
