Come join KPFZ Programmers, staff, listeners, and underwriters at our annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 10, 2016.  The festivities begin at 12 Noon and continue on until 5:00 p.m.  The PARTY is at the KPFZ Studios located at 149 N. Main Street in Lakeport.

Bring a friend and dish, snack, or beverage to share with the other party attendees.  There will be music and singing...who knows, maybe there will even be some dancing!  There will be opportunities to see old friends and make new friends.

Because of some unexpected expenses, KPFZ is also hosting a Stuff-A-Stocking to help raise some additional funds.  We're hoping you can share some of the season of giving to help keep us on the air and help us stuff our stocking!  Suggested donation is $5.

See you at the KPFZ Studio on Saturday, December 10th!
