Coordinator: Maureen Cunningham
The first use of Christmas trees as they're known today dates back to the 1500's. Some claim the tree originated in Germany in the mid 1500's, others claim it was Latvia in the early 1500's, and a few even believe in a legend that St. Boniface created the Christmas tree in the 7th century.
The theme for 2018 will be “Reflections Around the Tree”. The initial announcement will be given at our October meeting, followed by an article in the November/December newsletter. Maureen Cunningham, will have the sign-up sheet at the November meeting.
Members will be asked to bring a meaningful holiday decoration or ornament to display, followed with voting by the membership for winners in three categories: unusual, vintage and ethnic. Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each category.
Members will also be requested to bring an ethnic dish for the festive tables AND a non-perishable food item for donation.The Board will provide ham and rotisserie chicken.
Stay tuned for more details.
