It is with sad news that we were informed of the passing of Hilda Tolles. Hilda was a long time member of our group. Our condolences go out to her family.
We started January with several great activities.
First we had our normal “meet and greet” to start the New Year.
Then at the next meeting, Lucy DesRoches provided us a demonstration and exhibit of the various doll clothing that she designs for the American Girl Doll. She is an accomplish seamstress, specializing in creating clothes for the “American Girl Doll” line. It was a wonderful explanation of just how “beautiful” doll clothes are designed and created. Lucy then had a raffle for one of her doll outfits. The luck winner was Loretta Seremeth. Check our photos.
The following week many of our members met for lunch at the Grand Buffet. Some members had never been to this restaurant. It was a good time, with some folks saying they will be back.
I am happy to say that we are still having our Chair-Yoga every Thursday starting at 10:15. So come a little early and enjoy these various relaxation techniques.
The next week, we had our business meeting. Along with birthday announcements, we had cake and ice cream.
Business meeting highlights:
- Past meeting minutes were read and accepted.
- Treasurer’s report was read and accepted. All funds have now been transferred to Santander Bank.
- We still need to hold a membership drive. A chairperson is needed. Any volunteers?
a. It was decided that we would hold our 2017 Christmas Party at the Alpine Grove restaurant in Hollis.
b. We also will be looking at having our summer picnic at the Alpine Grove restaurant as they now have a miniature golf course, horseshoe pit, etc. A great place for a summer picnic.
c. The Hollis Seniors received a cash donation from the Hollis Women’s Club that was very much appreciated.
