Oak Tree Christmas Party 2018

With 2018 coming to a close, we would like to welcome all Oak Tree Dojo members and families to our annual Christmas Party!!! Traditionally, our fiestas have always been thrown at the dojo itself, but due to our EXPONENTIAL growth in membership this year, we have clearly surpassed our little building’s capacity. This year’s gathering will be held at the Veteran’s Building VFW Legion in Yelm, Washington.

The dojo will be cooking a turkey and ham for the event. If you are planning to attend, please bring your favorite dish to SHARE. There is a food sign up sheet located on the back wall of the dojo near the church pews. If you have not signed up for a slot please do so as soon as possible. If the list fills up, please bring something anyway. It is highly recommended that you NOT show up empty handed. We look forward to all who will be in attendance and can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with our judo family.

For more information, please follow our “Oaktree Dojo Booster Club” on Facebook, or contact Karen or Jeanie directly.

Thank you Jeanie, Karen, and the Oak Tree Booster Club for coordinating the event this year! We appreciate all of your hard work!
