The Latest News & Upcoming Events

December's meeting

This month is our Holiday dinner. We’ll be opening the doors at 6:30 to set up the tables and chairs, and then the feast will begin at 7pm. TVS will provide the drinks and paper/plasticware. Jill Evanko will be preparing the main course for this month’s holiday celebration. This will consist of Chinese ribs and tri-tip roast. Those planning on attending are asked to contact to indicate what type of side dish (green salad, potato, pasta, or rice) or dessert they will bring to the festivities. This will help ensure that a wide variety of treats will to be shared, and provide a head count on the number of attendees expected so that we can plan appropriately. We look forward to sharing the holiday together.

TVS Logo Wear

You may have seen some TVS members wearing shirts and jackets embroidered with the TVS logo. If you are interested in obtaining an embroidered logo item, you can do so by ordering whatever you would like through Land's End's Corporate Sales section and specifying TVS logo #0118948. You will need to set up an account, which will ask for the logo number and the TVS customer number (3452021).

TVS has also set up shop at Cafepress for members to buy non-embroidered TVS logo wear. You can have the TVS logo put on t-shirts, mugs, buttons, hats, coasters, etc. You buy through Cafepress, and Cafepress sends TVS a portion of the proceeds. Visit the web site to see all the TVS logo possibilities.
