The holiday season came and went with the usual flurry of activity and parties
before we settle into the long winter. One of those parties was our annual Christmas
Tea. Thank you, Heather Huether, for stepping up to organize such a lovely event and
to Lori Jurjovec for opening up your home to a large (and sometimes loud) group
of ladies. I know there is a committee of people that helped pull all of the details
together, so thank you for all of your work.
Recently, there was an interesting study done on a group of Norwegians in the far
north that endure an almost unrivaled winter. The study was trying to answer the
question of ‘how do they tolerate such a long winter’ and the long and short of it is
that they don’t tolerate it, but they embrace it! They look forward to snowshoeing,
cozy pj’s, and casual drinks with friends at home. So I would encourage you all to
try and embrace the first winter of this new decade by taking a walk if the sun is out
and it’s not too cold, checking in on some of our housebound neighbors and having
some friends over for casual drinks.
If you are getting stir crazy and need a reason to get out then join us for Trivia Night!
It is such a fun and casual night for a great cause. Money raised from the event goes
toward our scholarship program and general philanthropy, but this event sells out
quickly so don’t wait to RSVP!
