Annual Holiday Party for Great Basin Group

Join us for a merry evening to celebrate another great year of Outings, Programs, Getting Kids Outdoors(GKO), and all other events we've been involved with.  Bring a potluck dish to share; BYOB.  Bring a friend to share in the fun.  This year we are having a "recycled gift exchange", so bring  something you no longer need, have 2 or more of, whatever you think someone else would enjoy for the holiday, from your hiking, snowshoeing, camping, ….. and wrap it up in gift paper.  Also, we will have our GKO Giving Tree to raise money to get kids outdoors by buying an ornament to hang on the tree.  In addition, we'll be running a slide show of outings from 2015, announce the Tin Cup Award winner, and play some holiday music.  We hope you can make it to our annual Holiday Party!  Cheers!!!

When: Saturday, December 5, 6:30 - 8:30 PM

Great Basin rocks, histories, and landscapes are unique.
Nowhere else is the combination or the timing exactly the same.
Nowhere else can these stories be told.
