Christmas in July by Jenelle Templeton

Great company, fine food and good fun. This was the reward for venturing out on a chilly winter’s night for the annual NE Christmas in July celebrations. The setting was complete with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and giant sized blow up Santa.

We were treated to entrée of sushi, followed by a delicious array of roast pork with crackling, turkey, baked vegetables with all the trimmings.

A necessary break from the meal (to make room for dessert) was provided by Rob with several games. They provided an opportunity to get to know our fellow members a little better, a little team building and challenge our map reading skills.

Dessert was well worth the wait, an ice-cream Christmas Pudding as well as a traditional Christmas pudding with custard sauce.

Christmas in July was completed with the mandatory Kris Kringle. It was obvious that a lot of thought had been given to gifts and some were in high demand as they changed ownership several times.

Thank you to all that attended the night. A special thanks goes to Lauris for coordinating and preparing the meal. A truly magnificent effort. Thank you to all the helpers who contributed to make the night such a success.

“Some very creative Kris Kringles were on offer. When I opened my present, I found a large jar filled with the ingredients and a recipe for cookies. They baked up very nicely. Thank you from, Rob.”
