Our Christmas Party

Norma sent me her photos from the Christmas Party which was this year celebrated at Brick Street Restaurant in Grand Blanc. Our chairpersons, Julie and Sally, did a fine job of finding a wonderful location and hostessing the party, and Ulrike led a hilarious "regifting" game.
Here's one of Norma's pictures - I'll post the rest in our Yahoo Group page's photo album.

Ladies' Night Out

One of our few, but important, fundraisers to keep our organization going is our annual winter sale at Crossroads Village. It is predictably scheduled for the first Monday evening of deer hunting season, and the prices are low in order to attract "deer widows" out to the Village ... to get a jump on holiday shopping in a truly beautiful setting. The Village workers have been busily spending the time between Halloween and this night in November, stringing lights and setting up displays, and decorating the Village for the upcoming holidays. A night for inspiration!

These photos were taken in the afternoon, but when the sun sets and the holiday lights are lit, then - the holiday season has begun!

Here is a portion of the email our president, Ulrike, sent out the next day:

GCHS Members,
I feel so blessed, to be part of such a dedicated and generous group of herbal friends.
Yesterday was an incredible day/evening, with all the participation at Ladies Night Out. It makes me so very happy, to see so many of you, partaking in our activities.
We did good – really, very good at our sales table. We heard patrons say, “this is my favorite booth to come to” - that does make your heart swell!!!
