Volume 105 #24
Highlights from Last Week’s Meeting
By Phil Strom
The room was jumping from start to finish as Rotarians gathered for our annual Holiday Party.  The Rotary Singers provided enthusiastic caroling for the sounds of the season.  There also were guest singers skillfully accompanied by piano maestro Bob Kase. Each member received a lottery ticket upon registration with gifts upon every table for the lucky winners. And everyone participated both in lyrics and charades in performing the Twelve Days of Christmas.  What the all–inclusive activity lacked in dignity it certainly made up in joviality.  Cindy Lou Who would have enjoyed the rare roast beef.  The Mitten Tree was full – evidently there were no Grinches at this party.  The pictures below capture just some of the fun!
