Garden Club Christmas Party

Since joining the Beachhaven Garden Club, I have gained many new friends and shared in fellowship with them. The yearly Christmas party is always a highlight. This year's Christmas party was at the Clarksville Country Club, set up courtesy of Sandy. We love her!

The Country Club always does a great job of making everyone very comfortable. Comfortable enough to socialize in between eating so much that before we know it, the party is over and we are seriously all loosening our belts! Here are some pictures of this year's Christmas party.

The first picture is of what I call the "younger set". While they are not members of the garden club, the three children are certainly part of the 'family' and very welcomed. The three children are: Olivia, aged 10 (Eunice's granddaughter and Kayleigh's daughter), Jimmy, aged 13 (my youngest son), and Clare, aged 13 (Gerianne's daughter). All three children go to different schools but seemed to have something in common (does "Soldier Boy" ring a bell?)
The second picture shows our very own Sandy and her husband David. She works so hard and I know I speak for all of us when I say "Thanks for all you do!"

The last picture is of a few of the ladies (and a part of Darrin). Pictured from left to right are: Darrin, Rubeye, Doris, Esther, Margaret and Peggy. I couldn't possibly publish all of the pictures, but chose a few which I felt are representative of our group. (The rest will be coming via email to the group).

This year's Christmas party was just as nice as last year and we all had fun. It sure was different to see my son in a tie and everyone else talking and having fun all dressed in their holiday clothes. I look forward to next year's party to be even bigger and better!

  1. Sounds and looks like fun. Tks for emailing the pics. Love ya

  2. Hi Tina,
    Jimmy does look good in a tie, but--like my son most of the time, Jimmy needs a haircut!
    Glad you had a good time

  3. You know those kids nowadays. I can actually remember it was like that when we were in junior/high school too. So I guess it is cool. If long hair is the worse thing he does or that Zachary does-we should all be happy!
