This year, TBT crushed it with holiday cheer. We decked our halls and paid homage to Suessian Who Wompers and Pantookers. And with approximately 20 to 25 people present, our attendance spiked over the previous two months at the December 18th Third Tuesday of the Month gathering and Christmas fête held at the Tampa Life Enrichment Center. Needless to say, our holiday food table also overflowed with a yummy assortment. Thanks to Dr. Edgar S. Cahn, founder of the timebank concept, we hobnobbed, socialized, and looked each other in the eyes as we chatted, laughed, and made a gen-u-ine human connection to each other. On the Big Merry Day itself, Tuesday, December 25, some of us caravaned to an Open House holiday celebration at member Dr. Andy LePage’s joint for more joviality, holiday singing and, of course, eating. Phew! What a nourishing year it’s been on so many levels thanks to the Tampa Bay Timebank.
We’ll continue our feasting and singing and, of course, timebank exchanging, as we poise ourselves for 2019. Stay tuned for more as TBT launches into the new year, turning on its collective light bulbs to keep the momentum building around the TBT Revitalization Project! If you’ve got some groovy ideas, share them here in the blog.
