Program/Speaker: The Program was the gift swap. Around 30 members participated. Overall very few gifts were swapped, with the exception of the bakeware set and a few bottles of wine.

A good time was had by all as we headed into the Holidays. Thanks to Club Service Chair Jane Bromley Langley for the hard work on a great event!
