Laureate Beta Gamma: The home of Carol Daley was the scene of our Dec. 11 meeting which was small, as four were excused and out of town for the holidays. We decided that, given the extraordinary needs of the year, we would forego our usual cookie exchange and instead gave a freewill donation to the Salvation Army. Founder's Day this year will be on April 30 at the Moose Lodge with a theme of "Rekindle the Torch of Friendship." Jo Stoughton gave us an inspirational program about a town in Ohio that is able to give each year 10 pounds of flour (and 10 pounds of sugar) to the widows of the town to carry on the Legacy of Christmas Kindness which was started by a man who donated his land for this purpose. We enjoyed a Christmas social on Dec. 14 at Calico's. Attending were Carol and Mark Daley, Delores and John Shinn, Anne and Robert Wilson, Thelma and Paul Elstrod, Jo and Ralph Stoughton, Betty and Fred Beeman, Pat Smith and friend Cliff, Peggy Sollars and Dawn Calhoun. Our next meeting will be at 1 p.m. on Jan. 8 at the home of Dawn Calhoun. We wish you all a Happy Holiday and a safe New Year!
