The Graduates Christmas Potluck Luncheon was held on December 7th at the home of Bill and Susan Kapes. They were joined by their daughter, Katrina, who assisted throughout the day. The lovely home was decorated beautifully for the holiday season. Pastor Dan presented the hosts with a thank you gift from the group and returned grace prior to the noontime meal. Christmas music, heard throughout the house, helped to make the event even more festive as the group enjoyed their fellowship time together.
Following lunch, the group enjoyed participating in the annual ornament exchange. A lively time was had by all and each person attending was able to take home a new ornament to add to their Christmas décor.
