December 2023 Holiday Party
Our holiday party was an event to remember with beautifully decorated tables, delicious food – thanks to our members, and Christmas music. A fantastic selection of evergreens, flowers, and decorations (thanks Susan and Nancy) allowed members to create their own unique centerpieces. Thanks to all our volunteers who assisted with set-up and clean-up.
