2019 Christmas Party

Dec 13, 2019

There was lots of good food and wine at this year’s Christmas Party.

Around 70 people came for the event on a day that threatened rain and wind. The party fell on the 6th Anniversary of the History Center: Dec. 7, 2019.

Old friends reunited and welcomed new friends, including a couple of our new docents. Stories of the old days could be heard in every corner of the room. Some then adjourned to see the annual lighting of the Christmas tree in the Community Park.
