A holiday gift exchange will take place in lieu of a guest speaker at Applewood Business Association’s holiday luncheon, Thursday, Dec. 14, starting 11:15 a.m. at Rolling Hills Country Club, 15707 W. 26th Ave., Golden.

Luncheon guests should bring item for the gift exchange; cash, check or charge card to buy gift “steals” as well as bid on auction items; and a non-perishable food item for the local food bank.

The Applewood Business Association helps businesses in Applewood start, grow and flourish, is engaged in the community, and encourages businesses from outside Applewood to join.

Guests are welcome, with the first lunch free (but not the Holiday Luncheon). Newcomers may visit the meetings twice before they must join.

Cost for the luncheon is $25 for members and nonmembers. The deadline to RSVP is 5 p.m. on Friday before the meeting date. The Association cannot guarantee a meal after that time.
