Next Monthly Meeting – December 8

Glaziers Local Union Hall 513

HSCSS Winter Party & Gala

PhotoIt’s once again time for HSCSS members and guests to gather for the club’s annual Winter Party/Gala. As in years past, it will feature a silent auction, live auction and raffle – and don’t forget the great food. The fun will begin after setup at about 12:30 p.m. and end by 5:00 p.m. (Arrive around noon if you can help set up.)

Join us for this festive event at:

Glaziers Local Union Hall 513
5916 Wilson Ave.
St. Louis, MO 63110
(Just east of Hampton, south of I-44 – behind Hardee’s)

HSCSS will provide honey-baked ham and chicken, salad, soda and coffee. Please bring a large covered dish to share. It is suggested that if your last name begins with A through L, bring a yummy dessert. If your name begins with M through P, bring a salad. If your name falls in R through Z, bring a vegetable or side dish. Of course, you can also bring your specialty regardless of your last name.

A few reminders regarding the auctions, which will feature plants from several vendors. Please bring cash or checks to pay for your purchases – we can’t take credit cards at this event. Also, we will be composting and recycling at this event. Please remember to place items in the appropriate bins.

If you are donating plants or other items for the auctions, please let us know by Wednesday, December 4 at the latest. Keeping track of items and setting up in an organized fashion require knowing what’s coming. For auction items, e-mail Mike Hellmann ( or call 618-444-7860. For raffle items, e-mail Janet Kister ( or call 314-894-3779. For general questions regarding the gala, contact Ralph Olliges at 314-620-6850.
