47 merry souls (the most ever!) thoroughly enjoyed this year’s yuletide luncheon in the Prairie Lights. The food was great (the usual for RRC)! The only wrinkle was that we were expecting to be able to purchase beer and wine, but somehow that wasn’t to be. Anyhoo, that wasn’t a big deal. We enjoyed a white sangria to begin and the appies were very good.
Much appreciated was President Paul Vogt’s appearance and the opportunity for members to chat with him in an informal setting.
Karen Wall was again in charge of swag and merriment, and she did an amazing job. The tables were abuzz with people talking as we launched into a Christmas quiz. Karen then gave us the answers at the end. It was loads of fun, and she had prizes for it as well as other door-type prizes. Of all the loot though, the biggest hits were surely the handmade glass objects created by Steve Lipischak. Other prizes had been donated by social committee members.
General feeling: it was a huge success!
