         Christmas Cheer Abounds!
 
 
 
 
 
It was a really great Christmas party this year with a room filled with happiness, laughter and good cheer.  Perhaps some, like me, were just happy to have got through the crazy pre-Christmas week.  What was interesting to me, when I surveyed the room during the carol singing, wasthat the other patrons of the club were enjoying them also and singing along!  A good vibe.
 
Congratulations to our raffle winners.  Thank you to our carollers.
 
Most of all, thank you to Bill and Sandie who did a marvellous job organising the event, raising $500 for Community Kitchen House of Hope and $350 for Rotary International.  Bill asked me to include a big thank you to people for the support they gave to their fund-raising efforts and for their enthusiastic participation in the fun and frivolity.
 
Lastly, Merry Christmas to all - my gift to you is a SHORT bulletin.  May the New Year bring happiness and peace.
