Our Christmas celebration was a great success.
Thanks go to the kitchen staff at Edith Rankin United Church, for providing a delicious meal for everyone.
Thanks also to our December social committee members and other volunteers, who did a great job of setting up the hall, providing help during the meeting, and staying to help pack up and tidy the space!

Our collection of items for the Chernobyl charity was greatly appreciated.

Community Quilts had another beautiful group of quilts, ready to donate to our community. Lots of beautiful projects were shared by our members too! Our special guests this month were
Bruce Young, and Benoit.
Bruce shared a wonderful collection of his quilts, from traditional to wall hangings and runners. Benoit shared his beautiful hooked rugs.  Several were inspired by traditional quilt designs! Our thanks go to both gentlemen, for sharing their wonderful talents.

Merry Christmas to everyone, and hope for a healthy and creative New Year!
