Fellowship & Fun at our Annual Christmas Dinner
Rotarians, family and friends had a great time at our Dec 8 Christmas Dinner/Meeting.  So nice to see Paul and Linda Meyer, John and Kumiko Madsen from Steveston Club, Michael Chiu, Grace Tsang, Eric Wang, Sasha Liu, Dave Rogers and Denny Gou from Sunset Club.
Eva's guest Suna Yee was a first time visitor.  Rounding out our meeting this week, some of our family, Raymond Chan, Arlene Brown, Cecilia Li, Agnes Hsieh, Anita Lee, Becky and Makoto Tsukishima.  Along with regular members, Lulu, Dean, Chis, President James, Eva, Henry and Jacqueline all enjoyed some Christmas caroling, gift exchange and a most challenging trivia contest, eventually won by James, Grace and Agnes.
 I don't know if I like the gift exchange much, I never seem to hang on to my gift, some grinch comes along to steal my choice.  Thanks to Chris Browne for making arrangements for our Christmas function this year.  Reminder that December 13th is a regular meeting with guest speakers Penny and Chris Offer, both Past District Governors. - -Keith
