Holiday Party 2018

          This year our annual Holiday Party was held at Fox Hollow Golf Club in Branchburg, NJ in a room with a fantastic view of the golf course. Even though the weather was rainy and foggy, we watched the golfers as they braved the weather. We began gathering around 11 am and started the brunch soon afterward. The food was plentiful and delicious. One of the favorites was the carving station with delicious turkey and homemade gravy and tender beef with horseradish cream sauce and another favorite was the omelet station.

This year we honored some of our longtime members who have been members for forty or more years.  This year’s honorees and our guests were Jim and Missy Weisgerber – 43-year members; Rich Genabith – 46-year member; and Ole and Sheila Mortensen – 50-year members – each member was given a pin in recognition of the number of years of membership (in increments of 5 years). We are looking forward to honoring more of our long-time members at next year’s Holiday Party. Each adult in attendance received a blue coaster with NNJS in white as their holiday gift for attending. Also, thanks go to Jan Boop for presenting each one of the guests a calendar with one of her paintings printed on it. Jan is a very talented artist and has donated her paintings to the club in the past.

          It was a wonderful time to catch up with old acquaintances and meet some of our newer members. The conversations were lively and the four youngest attendees seemed to enjoy themselves very much (mind you they were all under the age of 7 and extremely well-behaved) – hope that we get to see more of them and other children at some of our future events. Needless to say, a good time was had by all.
