Early on Dec. 4, the roads were covered with ice. It warmed up and like magic, the ice was gone. We had many seniors make it to the meeting.

Fifty-seven of us made it to our Thanksgiving dinner at Bristol Hill Church. The meal was so good.

Our new member is Barbara Wallace. Welcome aboard.

Birthdays — Therisa Caltbiano, Gordon Smith, Roy Crouch and Denise Munger. We wish you all many more healthy, happy ones.

A 57th anniversary is being celebrated by Charlie and Rita Murphy. Congratulations.

On Dec. 14, we had our Christmas dinner at Seneca Hill. It was so beautiful with the big Christmas tree all decorated. I always try to sit at a table where I can look at the tree and enjoy it all the time we’re there.

The 50/50 winner for November was Mary Sugar and for December it was Mary Lalanga.
