Christmas Social

We had our Christmas social at our last Members’ meeting on Thursday, November 24, and a great time was had by one and all. Marg gave a demonstration on our exciting new website which we hope you will enjoy visiting! Helen brought her famous delicious punch which we enjoyed along with the assortment of appetizers and desserts brought by other members.

If you have any favourite family recipes you would like to share in our future newsletters, please forward them to either Marg ( or Linda ( and we’ll be happy to add them. Who doesn’t like Grandma’s oatmeal raisin cookies?!!!
