I am happy to report that we had a very successful Christmas Wreath fund raiser this year. We made 186 wreaths over all, 30 more than last year. More importantly, we sold 19 more than last year. The turn out of members working on this project was terrific. We worked very hard gathering our greens and three days making the wreaths. I wish to give a special thanks to Claire Grieve for a super job as chairman. Good Job everyone!

There were thirty five members and guests at our annual Christmas Luncheon held this year at Ashley’s Restaurant in Lakeport. A good time was had by all. We also had quite a few boxes of food and toys collected to help make a brighter Christmas for some people in need. The food was distributed through the Lakeport Elks Club and the toys by the Lakeport Fire Department.

January 18, 2005 will be our first meeting in this new year. We have numerous items to decide upon, so hope you will plan to attend. We will be treated to a program by Nona Carpenter, Past Mendo Lake District Director, Past President of Ukiah Garden Club and Redwood Arrangers, on flower arranging. She is a very talented arranger.

The Mendo Lake District Winter Board Meeting is to be hosted by the Ukiah Garden Club at their Garden House, 1203 West Clay Street, Ukiah, CA on January 26, 2005. You are invited to attend this meeting and meet the C.G.C.I. President, Bob Gordon, who will be their guest. The luncheon is $10. Make checks payable to Ukiah Garden Club and mail to P. O. Box447, Ukiah, CA 95482. Reservations must be in by Jan 21st.

The February 15, 2005 meeting will be preceded by a 10 A.M. workshop on Gourd Birdhouses led by Marilyn Crayton and Jan Kespohl. There will be a $2.00 charge for materials. This will be a fun thing to learn! Plan to attend.

This year’s Daffodil Tea is on March 15, 2005 and will again be held at the Bachelor Valley Grange Hall in Upper Lake. If you wish to host a table be sure to contact the chairman for this event, GinaBelle Smith.

On December 24, 2004 Jack Secord passed away after a long illness. He and his wife Mary have been members of our club since 1983. The members who knew him appreciated his quiet presence in all the activities in which he participated.
