    Jingle with GCA for the Holidays!

    Government contracting is such an intense, serious, and competitive industry.  Now that the holiday season is here, it’s time to let your hair down and relax a little.

    Come join GCA for a Holiday Mixer and Potluck in celebration of the holiday season.  It’s a great opportunity to do some networking, have some fun, meet new people and most importantly, eat some good food.

    GCA will be providing the turkey, wine, and drinks.  What will you bring?

    Tttle:  Jingle with GCA for the Holidays!

    Time:  6:30 pm – 8:30 pm (start coming early with your food)

    Bring your favorite dish.  Whether you bring a main dish or side dish, it’s your choice.  Put your elbow into it and show us what you can cook…and for a few of us…if you skip over to Kroger or Publix, we’ll just tell everyone that your significant other made it.  But we do ask that you don’t show up empty-handed.

    Are you gifted in singing? Can do special impersonations? Can you do special impersonations? Play an instrument?  Or just an awesome orator?  Come showcase your talent in the GCA Variety Show!  No rehearsal necessary.  Just sign up and show off!
