When it comes to entertaining for Christmas, Casual Gourmet knows how to celebrate the season.

The Puterbaugh House was the perfect setting for a yuletide luncheon with greenery and holiday touches of green, red and gold decor. Hostesses were Karen Stobaugh, director, Lisa Grippando, vice director and Nancy Gates, treasurer.

Stobaugh conducted the business meeting, gathered volunteer hours and reminded members the next meeting will be Jan. 19. Nancy Gates gave the treasurer's report, Stephanie Mowatt and Dot Thompson shared the joy of buying gifts for a girl and boy on behalf of the club. It was truly giving from the heart and received with such appreciation, everyone decided what matters most is to help others throughout the year.

Members brought crowd-pleasing cranberry, vegetable, spinach, fruit, corn, broccoli, strawberry and taco salads.

The hostesses provided an array of sweet sensation desserts, fresh rolls, coffee and tea before playing "Dirty Santa" gift exchange.

It was loads of fun and everyone left with a gift they wanted.

In attendance were Lynne Baker, Edlyne Boyer, Joyce and Tracey Bridges, Sherri Brumley, Margaret Fields, Nancy Gates, Judy Goodyear, Lisa Grippando, Linda Johnston, Dolores Miller, Sue Miller, Stephanie Mowat, Â Dorothy Rose, Karen Stobaugh, Dot Thompson and Ada Nell Ward.
