Tuesday, January 3 we had our birthday party for the members whose birthdays fall January and February. We served coffee and tea with cake and ice cream. The entertainment was excellent with JoAnne Moulton on piano, Ernie Webster on clarinet and sax and Fred Dayman playing guitar and singing a few songs. The tables were nicely decorated with Christmas centerpieces and flowers. The door prize was won by Yvonne of Hillview Lodge. Thanks to all the volunteers for their hard work. It was a lovely party. Our next party will be March 1 for March and April birthdays.
