A Note from Carolyn Cox—My thanks to those in the Club who continue to make our Holiday Luncheon such a
success. There were 30 in attendance last December 9. As usual the Women’s City Club was beautifully
decorated. Our table favors in 2010 were blue mugs and decorated holiday pencils, and centerpieces were Yule
trees of various materials, some glitzy, which the bridge winners took home as prizes.

Thanks to Carol Ramey and Iris Kuehls, who as usual helped set up and clean up. Several of you commented that
there was an extra warmth and friendliness this year.

The 2011 date is Thursday, December 8, same time, same place. Save the date!! --Carolyn
