Dec. 9: “Christmas Comes But Once A Year”

Dec. 23: No meeting – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

At our October 14 meeting Nick Mullane passed out sample ballots and went over them for us and then gave us information on state and town budget issues.

Our Halloween party was a joyous affair with upstairs and down decks out in its Halloween best. Prizes were awarded for costumes in four age groups, with ages two to adult represented. Sue had games for the children which included filling monster mugs with candy corn using a spoon, grabbing dog biscuits with a skeleton hand to see which team could fi ll their basket first, trying to ring sparkly witch hats, passing the pumpkin, sweeping balloon “creeps” and wrapping Charlie and Jeff in toilet paper. Both gentlemen made excellent mummies and they shambled across the hall. Jason Miner ran a very successful cup social to raise money for our Christmas fruit baskets while all enjoyed refreshments downstairs. Kaelin Rose guessed the exact number of candies in the guessing game.

Our Christmas party promises to be a pleasant evening for all. If you are bringing a child please bring a wrapped gift with name clearly attached for Santa’s bag. There will be apples and a small gift for each person attending, and Sue promises a special surprise for all. Please come. And if those pesky mice who keep getting into the basement will just find another winter home, next time we’ll tell you about nifty November.
