 The Environment  & Conservation Committee continues to throw fabulously fun parties for our club members to enjoy while supporting our “Promise Tree” Fundraiser.

The party began with fabulous treats created by E & C Committee members:

Followed by a watermelon quiz of 16 questions given by our “pretty-in-pink”, watermelon hostess, Jill Compton.  The winner of this  difficult quiz with the most correct answers , Edith Wyrick, won lovely ceramic watermelon measuring cups!

The quiz presentation was followed by each member describing their “watermelon couture”.

The committee then voted on the seediest, the pink and greeniest and the juiciest!  Winners were:

   *Ann Campbell, for the seediest selected her gift which turned out to be an amazing watermelon birdfeeder (who knew there was such a thing!)

   *Susan Canada for the pink and greeniest selected a package that turned out to be a box of delicious watermelon salt water taffy

   *Connie Gilmore for the juiciest selected a gift which was a  watermelon coffee mug

The party concluded with Watermelon Bingo played with watermelon jelly beans, of course.  Hazel was the winner and received a delightful Christmas ornament of a slice of watermelon!
