To brighten our homes for the holiday, EAGC members gathered to make wreaths and create arrangements sharing a variety of evergreens, cones, and berries gathered from our yards. Tables were piled high with fresh boughs of pine, fir, holly, juniper, arborvitae, dried orange slices, and pine cones…and what a very good year this was for winterberry! Under the tutelage of Connie Gilmore and Ann Hohenberger, many beautiful showpieces were created:
Connie & Ann wish to thank to all who participated and contributed flora from their gardens.
We gathered in December at the Wentworth Country Club in Newcastle, where we enjoyed a delicious luncheon of Maple Glazed Salmon or Beef Tenderloin. We heard our fearless leaders, Betsy & Jill, recite their version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” which cleverly included all our members and depicted Santa Claus as a “Hunk”!
We always seem to have great fun when we gather and take a look at some of the wonderful gifts exchanged:
Last, but never least, came Betsy’s Holiday Swap, and it did not disappoint-great food and drink, great friends and great gifts?!?! Here we go:
