We will be doing a Crew Fun Night. Please come ready to have fun. Each Crew member has to bring a couple of articles of clothing they don't wear anymore to the meeting. Also, bring a poem or song lyric to read in front of everyone. This poem or song lyric can be something you wrote or something you have found. Can be fun or serious.
We will have stuff to make Ice Coffee's, Milk Shakes and cookies for snacks to eat while people read their stuff.
All the articles of clothing go into a big pile. Each crew member picks through the pile puts something on in some fashion and gets up on stage in front of everyone. They read their poem or song lyric. We will clap and cheer each other on. Then return the article of clothing to the pile for the next crew member to pick through and put something on.
THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN.... so bring fun stuff and your goofy laughs.
