Look forward to AGLA’s annual Holiday Party on To Be Announced, at Freddie’s Beach Bar & Restaurant, 555 S. 23rd St., in Arlington. This will be a chance for you to socialize with other AGLA members and friends.
AGLA will once again be collecting boxes of cereal and nonperishable foods at the event to donate to AFAC (www.afac.org), the community leader in providing and promoting dignified access to nutritious food for those in need. This time of year AFAC many times sees an increase in those needing food assistance; this is another great way that AGLA helps our community.
There will be plenty of good cheer and a cash bar and fabulous raffle prizes. Over 100 people are expected throughout the evening.
There is no cover charge; this is a fun social event. Additionally as has become tradition we will have a number of fabulous raffle prizes for only $15. No cover charge, but you are encouraged to buy raffle tickets for the good cause.
AGLA is the party host, but you certainly don’t have to reside in Arlington to go to the party. Please feel free to invite all your friends, as the more the merrier!
Aside from a fabulous party this event also provides members (and potential members – so bring your friends your are not members yet) an opportunity to provide direct input to the board about the direction and activities of AGLA. As an annual meeting, members get to elect the board for the upcoming year. Nominations will be accepted from the floor.
Crystal City Metro is the closest Metro stop. When you arrive and exit the fare card reader, go up the first escalator and enter the glass doors on your left. Walk through the underground shops to 23rd St, turn right and cross Eads and walk about a block up. Freddie’s is on the right. Map.
