On Thursday, November 16th fifty two Heritage Club members and their guests attended the annual Holiday Luncheon that was held in RRC’s Prairie Lights… the best attendance ever!
Upon arrival attendees were treated to their choice of a red sangria punch or a white wine spritzer, along with two delicious crostini appetizers. Prior to lunch, Karen Wall, Chair of the Social Committee, brought holiday greetings from Heritage Club Chair, Leslie Walsh, who was unable to attend the event. The buffet luncheon included salads, vegetables, wild rice pilaf and the piece de resistance, grilled pesto chicken in cream sauce. The meal concluded with fresh fruit and a variety of dainties. All in all, a fine meal courtesy of the Red River College Food Services Department. The only complaint came from Table #3 lamenting that their table was drawn last in the buffet line-up lottery!
Thanks to several Heritage Club members, members of the Social Committee, Red River College and the Bison Drive Superstore we had 26 door prizes this year. That means 50% of the attendees received a door prize. The other 50% simply had to drown their sorrows in the sangria punch or wine spritzer and hope they would do better in 2018.
The luncheon finished with a fun Holiday Jumble for everyone to complete. No-one got all 30 of the jumbles correct, but tasty holiday candy treats were given to all who got 25 or more correct.
Everyone left in a festive holiday mood with a full tummy and a warm smile for their fellow retirees. A fun event for all!
