The Rogers Art Guild Holiday Party

December 13, 2010.

Each year our art guild has a Christmas Party then we visit a local Assisted Living home. The members exchange gifts and we have gifts for the residents at the assisted living home. 

This year we ate at a restaurant instead of having a pot-luck lunch at our regular meeting-place.  Our wrapped gifts for each other in the Guild were placed on a table then each member could choose a gift from the table OR "steal" a gift that another member had chosen. It's a lot of fun with some "serious" (wink wink) threats of retribution if the gift is "stolen"!

After our luncheon party we went to the nearby assisted living home where one of members and two of his friends played and sang some Christmas music.  The band played almost an hour and we were all sorry when it was time to leave and go home.  One of the band (Dave) is an artist and a member of our guild - he makes really good paintings as well as singing & playing guitar very well!

Please excuse my translated wishes for a Merry Christmas. I used a free online translation program and I meant well! :-}  I hope that you all have a:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all! 
Feliz Navidad  y  Feliz Año Nuevo  para  todos! 
Prettige Kerstdagen en Gelukkig Nieuwjaar voor iedereen! 
Joyeux Noël et Bonne année à tous!
Fröhliches Weihnachten und Gutes Neues Jahr zu allen!
Buon Natale e Felice Anno Nuovo a tutti! 
С Рождеством Христовым и С новым годом все!
