On Dec. 13 we had our annual Christmas lunch at the Rennbahn restaurant, Tattersalls, in Weidenpesch. Our programme organizers, Katie and Linda, did a wonderful job of arranging a small menu from which we could choose appetizers, main courses, and desserts. As an opener, we toasted with a glass of Sekt, compliments of the house. We also collected donations for our charity. Barbara has reported that between the two events we have already collected € 320 for the Frauenhaus. Ina had prepared the current membership list and we received the newsletter for our spring programme. We are already looking forward to seeing everyone in January.
