President Nita Eubank opened the meeting welcoming members and visitors. Secretary Sheila Martin read the minutes, followed by a short edit of the County News by Nita.
The guests for the evening were florist Margaret Abbott and friend, who gave us a wonderful display of floral arrangements, from Christmas wreaths to beautiful table arrangements. Margaret's creativity and expertise in the use of floral arrangements was fabulous. Evergreens and flowers were brought together to show her skills. She then kindly offered the five displays to us to raffle.
The excellent evening then continued with a buffet provided by the members, this being yet another good reason for a get-together!
The competition, a Christmas decoration, was won by Linda Mumberson, with Evelyn Varty in second place.
The quiz was won by Carol Colquitt.
The raffle was won by several members, including a visitor from St. Bees WI.
