DATE: January 17, 1999
PLACE: Ruritan Clubhouse
TIME: Doors open at 4:00 p.m.
WHAT: Happy Hour 4 to 5
Pea Soup Dinner @ 5:00
It's back to our regular location for our January meeting of Swedish Pea Soup. Members are asked to contribute items to compliment the soup -- knackebrod and crackers, finger foods, and desserts. Nibbling food for the Happy Hour is also welcome. As usual, the club will provide the beverages -- coffee, beer, wine and soda.
Please remember that gift items and baked goods are always needed for the raffle.
The program at this meeting will be Hans Thunander talking about Sweden
Ted Johnson will be opening up the old piano and leading us in a sing-a-long before our new club president, Leland Peterson, opens the meeting.
Leland would like to talk about the possibility of future programs. Write-in ballots will be provided for members to
|make suggestions about what we would like to have as far as entertainment
and food choices in the future. At the present time, we have Pea
Soup in January, Pannkakor in February, BarBQ (cookout) in October, Turkey
for Thanksgiving and Ham for the Ste. Lucia. Be thinking about what
foods you would like to have other months. Our established programs
are Midsummer in June, the Elections in November and the Ste. Lucia in
December. Are there other programs you would like to see added?
Please take the time to think about this, be prepared to write it in at
the meeting and Leland will present the ideas for discussion at the February
meeting. This is a chance for everyone to pitch in and contribute,
making suggestions as to what programs we would like to have and the foods
we would like to eat.
|When Last We Met:.
Our Jul smorgasbord and Lucia Fest was a smash hit. The location was wonderful and the guest singer was excellent. Gordon Nelson baked and carved the Julskinka. A big thank you to all the people who helped make this a delightful evening. Our Lucia procession was led by Maria Coker. It was a lovely celebration and a wonderful way to start the Christmas season.
