By popular vote, we will have a “Dirty Santa” AND a Xmas Buffet the Wednesday (December 21, 2011) before Xmas.

Each person is to bring at least one wrapped gift (value $5.00-$10.00) and a small appetizer or dessert.   If you can afford to bring 2 gifts, please do, so that anyone new or who doesn’t see this email, will be able to participate in the gift exchange.

Also bring a small food item, preferably an appetizer or dessert.   This is not supposed to be a large buffet dinner.  Just a snack.

Dirty Santa Rules will follow.

1993 World AIDS Day

Dec. 1st is World AIDS Day   Our topic for this date is

“Why is World AIDS Day important to you?”
World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.

The first World AIDS Day was held on December 1, 1988.
The CDC estimates 1.2 million people in the United States (US) are living with HIV infection. One in five (20%) of those people are unaware of their infection.

Although the annual number of new HIV infections in America (50,000+ per year) has remained relatively stable, it is far too high with all the knowledge we have of how to prevent infection.

In 2009, an estimated 34,247 people throughout the US (50 states and the District of Columbia) were diagnosed with AIDS.

Over the last ten years, the number of AIDS deaths in the United States has continuously remained at 14,000 to 22,000 per year despite the drugs we have to prevent most of those deaths.

Since the beginning of the epidemic in 1981, nearly 600,000 Americans have died from AIDS.

What does World AIDS Day mean to you
