Enjoying a nice lazy Sunday, watching the snowflakes fall and the birds in the feeders. It feels nice to have the Christmas Sale behind me, so I can relax. The sale was great — thanks to all who shopped with us. It is about time to give the money to the students who we pledged money to at graduation, so the proceeds from the sale will be put to good use.
The volunteers had their Christmas party last Wednesday. It was a lot of fun, with the white elephant gift exchange and the ugly sweater contest. It’s about the only time all the volunteers see each other, as everyone works different days. Of course, the food was great too — our potlucks are always the best.
Monday was our last day this week so everyone can have a vacation and enjoy the Christmas season with family and friends.
On Friday the gift basket was won by RCA, congratulations. The rolling pins that Howard Betty made and donated were won by Tootie Shaw and Dorothy Therriault.
Don’t forget the snowmobile club’s big Christmas dinner on Friday (Dec. 25). It’s always yummy and a good way to go visit friends and family and not have to cook and clean up.
Have a very merry Christmas from all of us here at the Senior Center.
