Over 35 folks met at the church on December 13 and had a delicious covered dish supper, sang Christmas songs with Marcia Wheeler providing the piano playing (whoever didn’t come missed the wonderful JOY version of the Twelve Days of Christmas), and played games with Charlotte Miller leading the group.  It was a lively group and filled the Social Hall; we even had to set up extra chairs!  A big thanks and hats off to all who helped.   

The sign-up sheet for interest in the Sight and Sound excursion is in the Narthex.  If we get enough interest to get the tickets at a discount and get enough drivers, we will collect money and order the tickets for some time in the Spring.  More to come regarding our next activity in February!
