Our 2014 Christmas Party, Potluck Dinner and Chinese Auction Fundraiser was fabulous! About 60 members and guests enjoyed an evening of fun, food and friendship.  Dennis McDonnell took a lot of pictures.  Thank you, Dennis!  You can see all the pictures at  The pictures tell a nice story of lots of delicious food, especially all those desserts, a fun evening with friends...notice all the happy, smiling faces and lucky auction winners.  The club made $392 for our education fund, over $100 more than last year.

Get the most requested recipes from the Christmas party - Sandi Richard's Holiday Punch, Michelle Brown's Butternut Squash Soup with Chiken & Wild Rice.  Enjoy!
