Guest Speaker/Program

We had a very special guest as Buddy the Elf joined us for singing and games.  Live music was provided by our very own Dr. Paul Dainer and Club First Lady, Mrs. Colette Keogh.

Fun was had by all who attended especially the kids who received an early Christmas present and picture with Buddy.  A special Thank You to Millie Huff, Erin Armstrong, and their elf friends for planning today’s event. 

The Club would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

President Bill led us in reciting the four-way test and then adjourned the meeting.
