Thanksgiving

Congratulations to ALL the volunteers who helped with that wonderful, delicious Thanksgiving dinner!  It amazes me how you can turn out such a delicious meal to so many people out of that small kitchen……and have it served while its still hot.

While we (as guests) sat comfortably at our tables, there was a flotilla of volunteers serving up the plates over in the ballroom and another group delivering the meals to us.  It worked like clockwork.  Very well organized!

See the lady with the blue shirt dashing across this photo in a blur??  That was our Special Events Manager, Joy Covell making sure we were all happy.

The pretty centerpieces at each table served as great door prizes donated by Jim Dawson and his landscape crew.

The weather was cooperative too.  We were predicted to have rain and cold for the day but precipitation held off until evening.  The sunset was awesome and made a wonderful way to end the day.  Of course, photos just don’t do it justice but I thought the trail of clouds over our house was pretty.

Monday night was Bingo up at the ballroom.  Nice turn out.

Paul Theriault from Alberta was a lucky winner of the Game 6 jackpot.  $479.  Congratulations Paul.  Flo Fillipi got to write the check for the payout.

The jackpot for Game 12 increases again as no one was able to bingo within 57 numbers.  The pot grows!  Again, I must take time to thank the volunteers who staff the snack window on Monday night.

And….the folks who do the call backs and get to pay the winners of each game.  Congratulations Bob for winning this game!  Notice how Doris has her eye on that cash.  Winking smile

Here’s hoping everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  Enjoy those leftovers and turkey sandwiches.  For those of you who are still out east or up north in the cold…………..sorry you aren’t here with us.  The weatherman said we’re going to be in the 80s this week with LOTS of sunshine.
