Jolly Whidbey Holiday Party Brings Out the Fa la la la la
For the Whidbey Holiday party on December 8th, the Nordic Lodge’s Hall was decked in festive swags and table decorations; the 75 party-goers were jolly in their gay apparel and were heedless of the wind and weather and snow that had been predicted; the sumptuous potluck dinner and over-the-top desserts auctioned to each table filled all with merry measure and filled our SWS coffers; the raffle and silent auction tables were adorned with Christmas treasures.
Gathered around our dinner tables, we toasted those who have passed, and we hailed the new lads and lasses of the 2016 class. ‘Twas a very merry night indeed, thanks to all who attended, donated, purchased, volunteered, and organized!
Our fun-filled fiesta was also a fund-raiser that brought in over $5,000 thanks to all the Stewards and business donors who participated in the silent auction, raffle, dessert auction, and the sales of Steward-made swags and donated poinsettias. Please do visit and thank the 23 businesses that donated to our raffle and auction.
And special thanks to the Social Elves Planning Team who organized and provided such a festive, friendly event: Jan Bell, Liz Berg, Finn Gatewood, Penny Harger, Jill Hein, Ingri Johnson, Michele Johnson, Nicole Luce, Liz Margolis, Sue Salveson, Candy Womack
