Christmas Social - December 1st, 2007
Our year drew to a close with an entertaining Christmas social. Members were greeted by wonderful Christmas flower arrangements.
Our Christmas social is just that: a few hours of conversation, a Japanese-style Christmas lunch, some entertainment and some gift giving.
Virginia Ise, the ukulele lady, entertained us with some classic ukulele songs and then helped us through some Christmas carols with some noted singers from amongst our members.
Christmas carols seemed to bring out the singers in all of us.
Virginia accommodated all who wanted to warble a few Christmas notes.
Kathy Matsushita explained our unusual gift giving ceremony, in which you could either select a gift from a table or steal one that had been opened!
There were lots of wonderful gifts to surprise our members.
You had to show what you had opened, in case someone might want to steal it from you.
With our Christmas nonsense ended, we left to pick up our brushes and begin 2008.
