FOOD PANTRY:   Last Saturday, the Food Pantry table was 'manned' by Eleanor Gregory and Ann Kellum.   Our generous residents donated $525 cash and 120 items of food.   We say thanks to all of you!

SOUTH COUNTY FOOD PANTRY:   The following residents help give out food at the Food Pantry:   Eleanor Barth, Ann Kellum, Sandy McIntyre, Ann Curtis, Ann Franco, Betty Mohr, Millie Wanatt, Anna Mazzotta, Pat Sellner, Judy Spears, Gerry Coleman, Lois Luther, Leanna Robinson, Eleanor Gregory and Joan Cherwa.   This is a very worthwhile cause and all help is appreciated.   So, thanks to the group who help from KGC.

CHRISTMAS BAZAAR:   Fran Yaros reports the Christmas Bazaar made $308.77.   Thanks to all those who worked, made or donated items, and to those who purchased them.

THOUGHTS:   As I write this morning, we have had a little of our much-needed rain.   We have had very chilly (cold) weather this past week - actually the coldest I can ever remember at this time of year, in my almost 30 years here - but it is still better than being in Minnesota.   But the sun is still warm and pleasant and we can enjoy each day.   Be sure to drive around and enjoy all the decorations in the Club - and in the surrounding area.   Many people go to a lot of work for our enjoyment.      --SJB
