A Well-Fed Bunch

The desert table(s).

Soup’s on!! 

Outgoing President Joan Morton and her gift of a wood carving.

 Tweed and District Horticultural Society’s annual Christmas pot luck dinner was a wonderful way for its members to start the holiday season. Bright red tablecloths with fresh evergreen boughs interlaced with Christmas ornaments and poinsettias gave a festive air to the meeting room at the Tweed Library.
 As usual the dinner showcased the culinary talents of its members….scalloped potatoes, glazed carrots, meatballs, cabbage rolls, cheese platters, veggies and dip, many, many different salads and homemade bread …and the dessert tables (note the plural) were laden with cookies, tarts, squares, cakes  and several “crisps”.  Wine, punch, tea and coffee rounded out this amazing feast!
Several members were recognized for 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of service to the group. Congratulations to these members. Outgoing President Joan Martin received a beautiful wood carving in appreciation of her 4 years in the role of President for the group.
Once again this year, members were invited to play the “Quarter Frenzy” game bidding for items using their quarters to do the bidding. Laughter along with the sound of quarters dropping into the cups could be heard as the game was played. Great prizes were won by many lucky members…some members even won more than once! Members also won the poinsettias that were on the tables for the dinner.
After
all the excitement of the game, members sat back and enjoyed Linda Holmes’
annual video presentation of the club’s activities and speakers during 2015.
Many thanks to Linda for her work in organizing this presentation as it was
certainly enjoyed by all.
Wishing
all our members a joyous holiday season and best wishes for 2016!
Note:
Next meeting
