Meeting of December 12, 2019:

We had another wonderful Holiday Party at Chef's Station and a sincere thank you to all who came out to support our fundraiser for The Charitable Fund. It was a festive evening of good cheer with new friends, and those we have known for many years.

The Holiday party at Chef's Station was just what we had hoped for, with delicious comfort foods prepared by our own, Chef Elio, a beautiful array of both comfy & not so "ugly" sweaters, and an auction table full of homemade and hand-selected cookies and candies. We even had the gift of our all-time favorites, chocolate covered peanuts & cashews, sent to us by Gary Bowen. Thanks Gary! 

Many thanks to all who participated in making this a fun evening to remember!


As part of our holiday fundraising, we eagerly signed up for the annual "Nan Sharp Dinner", generously donated by Nan Sharp from Food for Thought. A few seats are still available. The date is Friday, April 3rd. Please contact Evelyn for more information.


Though there are just a few photos posted, see our Facebook page for more highlights! 

We have one more meeting coming up on Thursday, December 19th when we welcome LeadershipEvanston to our club meeting!

Enjoy a wonderful holiday season... and may all be calm and bright.

Happy Holidays!
