Our annual Holiday Party was held on Sunday, December 8th at the Fox Hollow Golf Club in Branchburg, NJ.  Over 40 members came out to enjoy the festivities and graciously donated to Toys for Tots. We gathered in our own private room with a beautiful vista of the rolling hills of the golf course bathed in sun and shadows. Our meal started out with some fresh fruit,  breakfast pastries, muffins, and bagels,  After whetting our appetites, it was on to the main food selection: French Toast with warm maple syrup; bacon; sausage; home fries; grilled vegetables; Caesar salad; baby greens salad; green beans almondine; grilled vegetables; rosemary roasted potatoes; eggplant rollatini; carving stations with turkey and tenderloin of beef,; and a made to order omelet station.  As if this weren’t enough, it was followed by a delicious dessert selection of pastries and freshly baked cookies.

          This year we had a contest to see who could solve the rhebus of Christmas carols. There was one winner from each table and they then had their choice of a poinsettia, a snowman plant, or an ivy teacup plant. A good time was had by all as there was plenty of lively conversation at each table and around the room. It was good to catch up with old friends and meet some of our new members.

          All of the leftovers were packaged up and brought to a local boy’s home on Sunday afternoon. They were very appreciative of our section’s donation.  This is the same place that the leftover food was donated last year.

Toys for Tots

          A great big THANK YOU to all of our members who so generously donated toys, books, stuffed animals, and other items to our ‘Toys for Tots’ event at our Holiday Party. The toys filled up the back seat and most of the wayback of my GL 450. I dropped them off at MB of Flemington on Monday and they were amazed at the variety of toys, stuffed animals, and books. They were astounded at the generosity of our members. Check out the photos – we filled 2 Toys for Tots boxes plus the items that you see under the tree.  Well done everyone.  This is something that I have always been passionate about and I sincerely appreciate your generosity
