|The Party Table!|
Our January 15 meeting was a Post-Holiday White Elephant Party. Going completely in Table Topics format, upon opening our White Elephant gifts, we each used our two minutes (and communication skills) to explain why this was our best gift ever.
|Jean and Jerry|
|Eugene and Jerry|
While we selected our numbers from Jerry, we also filled our plates at the holiday-themed food table. It's just not a party without adequate snacks.
It was pot-luck today with everyone contributing to the bounty.
Assorted party shots follow:

Cindy proves that a good time was had by all.
