Christmas Slipper Lunch

Our December luncheon is the traditional slipper lunch, in which we come together for the holidays in festive footwear. People customize their slippers according to the theme (this year the themes were “Best Bling” and “Winter Woodland Creatures”), votes are cast, and winners are declared.  Afterwards, we have our gift exchange, where gifts are stolen back and forth mercilessly.  All in good fun, of course!  The best part of the luncheon are the generous donations made to the food bank that helps ensure that everyone has a wonderful holiday season!
