Merry Christmas to everyone! Each guest received a package from Santa before they left the luncheon.

It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year for the December Lunch with Friends group.

What a treat! Rosetta Stone (aka Rose Kraemer) with husband Tom Kraemer, entertained the guests of over 80 at the Marco Lutheran Church with holiday songs and lots of dancing music.  It was a great way to work off the delicious meals provided by Red Rooster and Nacho Mama’s and the home baked cookies by the volunteers.

This time of the year, a lot of us experience an extra dose of anxiety and stress. There is holiday gift shopping to be done, cooking, family gatherings, and stress takes over the holiday spirit. But it was all smiles and laughter for the December luncheon as guests spent quality time with old and newly found friends.

It may not have been the Argentine Tango or the passion of the Flamenco but everyone looked refreshed and energized by the music. The dancing could be a seed of a New Year’s Resolution.  It was even more fun when each guest went home with a gift-wrapped present.
