~ Holiday Wreath Decorating - 2015 ~
This is one of our fundraising activities. The club purchases the wreaths in November, the amount depends upon the number of wreaths each member decides to purchase and decorate. Come December the members who have chosen to decorate come to the church and decorate their wreath. A photo of each wreath is taken and assigned a number. The wreaths are then posted on the website and the members use our online voting form to vote on their favorite. Dennis is the only one who knows which number goes with which wreath and member. We had a very nice turn out in 2015, albeit smaller than the previous year. However, we had 20 wreaths decorated, which was only 1 shy of last year. Once again the talent was exceptional. Several ladies, Arlene Blanchard, Liz Colbern, Pat Craig, Jan Ackerman, Joyce Klemann, Alice Smith and Maria Trainor decorated additional wreaths for other members and friends. Joyce Klemann decorated a wreath for the church secretary. Arlene's daughter Gina, sorry I forgot to ask last name, worked with Arlene decorating 4 wreaths. They were the last to leave. We all enjoyed coffee, tea, cookies, donuts, guacamole and chips. Let's try for a bigger group next year. Rose Obetz won for the best wreath in 2015.
