Our Annual Christmas Dinner

Our annual Christmas Outing was held at the Sanctuary Ridge Restaurant and a good time was had by all. After a bit of socializing, we enjoyed a nice meal and then heard from President Dotty Dill before our gift exchange. Dotty said that she was helped in office by so many “Shining Lights” and she presented present and future officers with lighted electric candles. In the photo below they may be seen in the hands of our officers. A nice “Thank You” for a job well done and a light to shine the way into the future.

We all had a good time sharing gifts. Numbers were handed out a and then numbers were drawn and when your number was drawn you could either “steal” a gift from someone who had already received one or choose a gift from the table. A lot of fun and bottles of wine seemed to travel around the most. But everyone appeared to leave happy.
