The Richland Wide Awake Club met Dec. 19 at the New Salem Lions Club for their annual Christmas Dinner.
Six members and seven guests sat down at a beautifully decorated table complete with a survival kit and prayer rock.
As usual, Diana Bedel, our inspired party leader had given us all our Christmas blessings. Our ever-inspiring cateress served a delicious Christmas dinner. She assured us that the meal had been specially prepared and blessed so that we were not ingesting any fat producing calories.
After dinner, Diana led us in thought necessitating games. Each game produced several winners but Diana was prepared to break all ties so that a winner emerged. No meeting of this group is complete without catching up on the local news, or do I mean gossip; after this we went home (where I am certain most enjoyed a refreshing nap).
