Fifty members of the club chowed down on their turkey feast. But this crowd likes their sweets first. First served was a cranberry salad topped with mounds of whipped cream. Following the turkey entrée were generous squares of cake with plenty of frosting — not the day to pay attention to calories.
Event Chairperson Ann Wacker has held that volunteer position for eight years. She kept her committee members running, so the food and coffee could be served warm. League President Judy Mendicina supervised the whole shebang.
The oldest club member present had to be Helen Vrana. At 99-years-old, Vrana has been a member for about 12 years. She was hoping to win a giant, plush Winnie the Poo bear centerpiece. Vrana has macular degeneration and is considered legally blind. She and the rest of the diners left well-sated and toting more sweets—goodie bags of homemade cookies.
