December 2018 Recap Holiday PartyRecap
Hosts: Karen & John Gerrits
On Saturday, December 15th, members gathered at the home of John and Karen Gerrits to partake of our annual Holiday Party. Members enjoyed a happy hour with lots of conversation and laughter. An early dinner was served consisting of ham, turkey, potato casserole, vegetables, fruit salad and rolls. Members brought donations for Toys for Tots (letter below) and the Purdy Prison Pet Project. Beth from PPP joined us for the party and told us all the new happenings with the project. She brought one of the dogs from the program, a wonderfully gentle yellow lab who performed a few tricks for us.
After dinner, we did our member gift exchange and enjoyed dessert and coffee before hitting the road for home. Fun time! Each year members of the Rainier Ramblers donate to the Marine Toys for Tots Christmas toy drive. Donations are collected at the annual Club December Holiday gathering.
Attached is a picture of the toys donated for 2018. It was our privilege to deliver the toys to the Marine recruiting office in Lacey, WA.
