The dining room was beautifully decorated with Christmas flowers and decorations. A special thank you to Betsy McFadden for all the decorations.

Kay Oughterson’s program for the evening was “Gingerbread Wishes.” We should be Christians who bake up and are ready, full of God’s love, and willing to share the true meaning of Christmas.

The evening closed with prayer.
