December 2015 Christmas Lunheon

Date: December 12, 2015

Location: 300 Churchville Avenue, Staunton VA

Hosts: Dave and Evelyn Crabtree

We had a great Christmas Luncheon on Saturday December 12th at Now You are Cooking in Staunton with twenty-three members attending. As usual, Brent Hizey and his staff prepared a wonderful meal. We also collected a bunch of cans of food for the local Food Pantry in lieu of exchanging gifts amongst ourselves.

Tim Seaman presented our illustrious Prez with the first annual "Golden Club Award" in honor of his prowess on the golf course during the past camping season. He also presented me with the consolation prize - a nicely framed picture of our Prez about to tee off (It certainly "tee'd" me off).

On a more serious note, Filiza gave each "coach" a very large crocheted Santa or Snowman and Baynard made everyone his trademark "penny holder" tree ornament - which this year was a reindeer. Thanks to Feliza, Baynard and Timm.

One of the nice things about using "Now You're Cooking" as a venue is that they let us linger and visit as much as we want - and that we did until well after 2:00pm. We have been going there since 2009 and perhaps some would like to explore a different location. Perhaps someone else may want to host the luncheon. Let me hear your thoughts. We certainly are open to suggestions.

Thanks to all who came and help make this a special event.

Come on spring, we are ready to go camping!!!
