The Holiday Party last Saturday (Jan 24,2019) was a great success! Rex did a great job of preparing steak and fowl and we got rid of drinks left over from Fall Fest --  WOO HOO!

The only questionable thing about the party is how badly we sang Karaoke. WHEW! I hope no one had nightames after all the off-key sining we did!  And Bill, I hope Barb didn't make you walk home after that serenade....
