When the weather man said that winter was half over last week, I just about cried in my coffee—where does the time go?! Since we need to submit articles to our Newsletter Editor by the 20th of each month, I have a lot to report on from the past weeks. The Woods put out great hors d’oeuvres for our Christmas Party on December 23rd. Plates of stuffed mushrooms, cheese and crackers, vegetables and dip were served, along with beer and wine. This was also our Pre-trip meeting for both the Marquette Day Trip and our four day trip to Lutsen.
