Lots more photos of the Christmas Party are in the Photo Gallery.

Brothers and Sisters:
 
First off, let me wish everyone a Happy New Year!
 
   The Christmas party was a smash hit. We had a fantastic turnout of over 285 people. The food was awesome and the hall nicely decorated for the holidays. A special thanks to the executive committee for doing another spectacular job. A special thanks to Ronn and Lin Cain for again taking care of the basket of cheer this year. It was won by Lori Ratlief, pictured below left. Also, a special thanks to Cherry Brett and Ginger Townsley for selling the 50/50's. Donald Spencer, right, won the 50/50. Thanks to Mike Krainer and his crew who ran the money wheel. Thanks to Tommy Madkins for running the cake wheel. It takes a lot of time and volunteers to make these parties the success that they are. A big thanks to Charlie Long and his "Rubber Band" for putting on another good show. We also would like to thank our two guest band members, Suzanne Hollis and Erin Durange, who gave a great performance.

   Congratulations to Triple Crown Winners: John Adkinson, Joe Reichert, and Calvin Duley. This drawing was held at the regular union meeting in December. We are going to sell the Triple Crown Tickets differently this year. The tickets will cost $5 apiece, but the prize money will be a lot more. It will be $1000, $500, and $250 instead of $300, $200, and $100. 
 
Just a reminder on snow closings:
   Bowling: If Anne Arundel County schools are closed because of weather, then there will be no bowling.  If A.A. schools are delayed in opening 1 or 2 hours because of weather, then we will be bowling.

   ARM Meetings: If Baltimore City schools are closed because of weather, then there will be no meeting.  If Baltimore City schools are delayed 1 or 2 hours because of weather, then we will have our meeting.

Here's an easy recipe for these cold months:
