Decatur County Extension Homemakers Night Club Christmas party
The Night Club met at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 at The Beach at Lake Santee with six members present for our Christmas party and meeting. Roll call was answered by telling about a doll you received for Christmas.
Bessie Ploeger brought old Christmas cards for members to write a favorite recipe on and this was traded with another. The meal prayer was given by Joan Greiwe. All enjoyed their food and then played a game in which all the answers had the word, “cake” in them. Joan Greiwe conducted the game with 16 questions. The most anyone got right was eight questions and all received prizes.
The mystery box was won by Bessie and the lovely door prize provided by Loretta Macyauski was won by Janet Hagerty. Loretta also provided decorative cookies of snowmen and reindeer for all to enjoy. Favors were given by Bessie and Joan, president. One of the favors was green and red M&M’s with the meaning of Christmas note on the bag.
Instead of exchanging gifts, the Night Club decided to give $50 to the Daily News Cheer Fund and $50 to the St. Anthony Church in Morris for their Haiti medical mission trip.
Thanks to Bessie and Catherine Mauer for arranging our party. The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, at Liz Hally’s home with Bessie as co-hostess.
