The annual PCBA Christmas party will be at the Duxbury Senior Center, 10 Mayflower St in Duxbury on December 1st, starting at 5:00 PM. There will be a pot luck supper and a Yankee Swap. Yankee Swap gifts are generally in the price range of between $10.00 and $15.00. Please contact Delores Marchewka at to coordinate your potluck supper offering. Alternatively, click HERE to enter your offering online. We need appetizers, main dishes, salads, bread/rolls, desserts and punch.

This is one of the club’s favorite events. Delores and Chuck Marchewka do a wonderful job of planning and coordinating it every year. The food is always great and there is always a lot of action at the Yankee Swap. Especially when there is a bottle of mead in play. So mark it on your calendar and if If you know of a member that does not receive email, or needs a ride let them know about the party and give them a ride if they need it.

Wax Rendering and Candle Making

Saturday, December 8, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

There will be a wax rendering and candle making workshop on Saturday, December 8th from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Hanson Clubhouse, 228 High St, Hanson. Everyone is welcome to observe but if you want to render your wax you must call John Phillips at (781) 293-2297 to let them know you are coming because John likes to get some of the wax melting early.

This is also an annual family event that is open to the public. John hands out wax figurines to kids 12 and under. So come on down to watch, mingle, render some wax, make a candle and if you have friends that are not in the club bring them along. Make sure to contact John if you are bringing wax.
