Christmas Luncheon Fundraiser and Recipes

Last weekend, we had a lovely Christmas luncheon at Margaret's.  Margaret's lemon squares and Gloria's Cranberry salad were a BIG hit, and everything was so good...... Thank you Margaret for hosting this event and we very much enjoyed being in your lovely home and appreciated your hospitality.

With the donations of silent auction items, we made $136 for an African orphanage that a medical student Margaret knows, supports. Margaret is matching  this amount so it is a great day today to know that this money will go to a very good cause.

We plan to print some of the recipes on our blog, once those who attended submit their dish recipes.

Have a safe and happy Christmas season for 2011, and a big "thank you" for this year's donating of auction items and time, organizing, giving presentations (schoolchildren, Dye Class), fundraising, donating to AIDS Saskatoon, driving,  lending personal items for the school, and opening your homes for rughooking.

What a great group of ladies!
