Everyone had a wonderful time and the food was excellent. Unfortunately, some of our members were unable to attend this year. Louise Hodder created the Christmas Basket for the raffle which consisted of a bottle of wine, two Queen’s Own Rifles wine glasses, and two Queen’s Own Rifles glass coasters.

We would like to congratulate our Committee for a job well done for organizing and making all the arrangements for this year’s luncheon. Thank you to Bob Titus, Louise, Hodder, Arlene Albrecht, Gil Chenier and Lynda Peterson.
