Nancy Wallace was our over-all coordinator for the annual EQ Christmas Meeting and with the help of Joanne Bryant, prepared a hands-on ornament-making program as well! Thank you, also, to Colleen Thomas for the mulled cider, the Laurie Latta and othe memebrs of the quilt hanging crew, Peggy Schuld for the coffee and tea service and to everyone who helped set-up and clean up! It takes team work to pull off an event like this!
It was hard to take decent photos with everyone so inently bent over their work!
While the first group started on their ornaments, other sat and visited and took their turn at the work tables a bit later.
Our food was catered by Jeff Nichols and his crew at The Galley.
Thank you, Jeff! It was scrumptious!
Dessert was provided by members. Besides what we ate on the spot, we were given the opportunity to take a generous portion home to boot and provied with baggies!
Who deosn't love Maxine and her sense of humor!
Joanne Bryant added to the festive table decorations already in place
for the Seniors by sharing her nutcracker collection!
