December-Our annual Christmas luncheon was held at Mary’s Market on State Street, a new location for us. Those attending were the Browns, the Gastels, Wendy, the Hellers (with their adorable granddaughter), the Hickses, the Olsons, Esther, the Watnes, and Dave.
Many brought cards which were passed out as others arrived. The side table in our room was filled with packages for the children at the Rockford Rescue Mission. Special gifts that were included were gloves Dave donated that had been made by Lou. Thanks, CC! You have helped make many kiddos happier this Christmas season.
Dennis presented Wendy with her WIT honorary membership certificate. A variety of food was ordered. Paula passed out the new booklet information for 2018. We have some wonderful memories of our year together and can’t wait to create new ones in 2018!
