December 18th — Christmas Waffles

The UtahWP group is having a christmas party this year. We are going to go hold it at the Belgian Waffle House in Midvale. If you have never been there, the waffles are amazing. Help us celebrate this great year we had by joining us Thursday the 18th.

Food will be sponsored by Bluehost, but funds are limited. If you’re planning on going please RSVP to the meetup event, so we can get a head count. If the event is full and you’d still like to join us be aware that your food may not be covered.

Thanks everyone for the great year.
