Thank you Dennis for organizing a wonderful evening. We had a fantastic band, nice christmas caroling and also managed to get some dancing in.
Jim Mahoney updated us on the christmas tree sales which went very well. We sold out almost immediately and are talking about possibily ordering an extra 30 to 50 next year. Betty and I put on a bbq for the agriculture boys, Ana, Margie and Jim on the last day as a thank you for all their hard work and had a few diet cokes with them. Friday morning we set up and decorated the large tree we donated to Airport arrival area. Looks very nice! A special thank you also goes out to Bill Maxey for all his work in organizing and ordering the trees year after year. Thank you again Peter Crispin for the use of the Tool Shop and power. A special mention was also said at meeting for all that Hamburg Sud has done for Rotary. Bill’s personal computer Tom Drabble came up with a rough estimate of their donation throughout the years. Faafetai Tele I believe is going into the papers for them.
A few celebrations also that evening. Danytra Young turned 21, Jim and Ana celebrated their 31st Anniversary and Mrs. Bacon also celebrated a birthday.
Dinner: Don’t know about you guys but my dinner was fantastic. Loved the salad, Prime Rib and the desserts were to die for. Tom, could that salad be added as a main course for our Friday meetings…please! Oh and the sour dough bread…yum!
Continue the christmas spirit until we meet again…Friday at Sadies Inn…12:15…Soifua and Merry Christmas!!
