January 2024 Newsletter

Club members enjoyed several events to celebrate Christmas and say Good-bye to 2023. Festivities began in earnest with the Floor Curling Party on Dec. 13, the players decked out in season’s costumes. There were prizes for winning teams, and pot-luck goodies for all.

Next was the Dec. 19 Christmas Lunch and traditional Bake Sale, traditionally successful!

And finally, we rang in 2024 (yes, early as per seniors’ habit) on Dec. 29 with the Pre-New Year ‘s Games Night. Despite everyone’s busy lives, about 60 people attended (and didn’t leave early!)

As always, we owe a big THANK-YOU to the many volunteers that made it all happen, and also to the sponsors that provided door prizes.


Volunteers Needed: For example, to keep the coffee fresh, we need 8 volunteers. See the sign-up sheets.

On the Lighter Side

·       Last year, I kept all my New Year’s resolutions. They’re tucked away in a journal on my bookshelf.

·       My New Year’s resolution is to read more. So, I’ve enabled subtitles on my TV.

·       I don’t call them New Year’s resolutions. I prefer the term “casual promises to myself that I am under no legal obligation to fulfill.”

·       And finally… May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions!

               BEST WISHES TO ALL FOR 2024!
