Hello everyone. We had a nice Thanksgiving Party/Meeting on November 10 at the Life Center. Al and Esther provided the turkey and dressing, while the rest of the atten-dees brought sides and desserts. After the meal and meeting, there were three lucky people who won the door prizes (a $50 gift card and two $25 gift cards). Congratulations to them.
Our annual Christmas Party is scheduled for December 8, 2018. You can purchase your tickets ahead of time by contacting Rosemary Burke (see first page for telephone number and email address). During our Christmas Party, we will be eating a nice meal, and if you bring a wrapped present, you will be able to participate in our most interesting gift exchange, which I explained in the last newsletter.
January and February Anniversaries have been included in the December Newsletter since we will not be publishing another Newsletter until March of 2019. There will be no COH Meetings until March since the weather can be very unpredictable in January and February. And some people head South for vacations. Therefore I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Stay safe and dress warmly.
