The holiday season is upon us and that means there are a lot of festive events to join in on!
Woman’s Club Tree Decorating!
We will be decorating a tree in Central Park on December 4 at 9:30 A.M. Join Carol Card and Joan Gfeller for a morning of coffee, donuts and Christmas cheer! The tree will have begun having the lights and tree top star put on. The club ladies will reach as high as they can to put on the ornaments that we provide. We will be putting them in the back of the tree this year because the bushes have been cut behind the tree. That way the Sun Rail and people going to the ice skating ring will see the trees decorations.
The tree is on the same side of Morse as the skating ring. However, it is on the side closest to the park and the back of the tree is close to the Sun Rail track opposite side of Morse from the station.
We will have a red convertible and banners to march in the Christmas parade this year! If you would like to join us, please meet at 8:30 on December 5th near the Golf Course (exact location TBD).
Our Holiday Luncheon will be on December 10th! Please click the link for the registration form. The RSVP deadline is Friday, December 4th.
