Christmas luncheon another “merry” event

sallWhat a way to kick off the month of December with our Christmas Luncheon! The luncheon is jam-packed with toy donations going to Toys for Tots; two awards presentations; acknowledgement of our Fall Charity Tournament;  nomination of new officers; entertainment; out-going President Arlene Taylor’s remarks; door prizes; social………and oh, yes, something to eat!  But, hey, we are becoming Super Women, not just on the courts, (yeh, we are!), but we accomplish this feat in less than 2 hours with lots of organization from many members!

linda aThe 4th of December was another fun luncheon held at the Valley Hill Country Club, with Connie Smith once again sponsoring us.  Barbara Hitt started our luncheon with a prayer to satisfy any denomination. Trish Kee and Nan Case each received the coveted awards of Sportsman and Most Improved.  Marsha Gates presented Tony Osani with a check for the Miracle League.  Chris Jackson shared her wonderful voice in leading us in Christmas carols while our lunch was served. Door prizes were provided by Bennets Nursery and Joc Simmons.  The table decorations of metal sleighs and baskets filled with greenery, were taken home by one lucky lady at each table.   Special thanks to Linda Winters for the task of table reservations, Karen Mitchell and Sue Chatham for name tags and table numbers, Mary Ann DeMaioribus for creating the invitation and poster, Kathy Brandon as our tireless photographer, the decorating committee, and Sally Walker for always being there as needed.

We all know that Karen Morris as our new president will lead us into another eventful year with her newly nominated board. Hopefully, you all have your calendars marked for the first Tuesday in December for the 2013 Christmas Luncheon……see you there!
