On December 8th, we gathered for our Holiday Party at the home of the very gracious and generous Jolly and Patty Gissell! It was a marvelous evening! 
Myrna Husting, Lisa Alexander, Chuck Husting, Val and Alan Glick all had a blast!
Great to see John McIntire and his guest Ellen Travis, and we are so happy to see Robert Segal around again!
David Rosenfeld is the baby whisperer, proven here as he holds little Mia, the daughter of former Executive Secretary June Doy. Apparently Russell Nelson still needs some convincing, though.
 
It was great to have our leadership there! President Tom Larmore attended with his lovely wife Karon.
President-Elect Mitchell Kraus came with his beautiful bride Cynthia as well, and they enjoyed time with Suzan Allbritton (middle).
 
Likewise, it was wonderful to have some of our newest members in attendance! Here is John Dracup and his wife Kathleen...
 
And Dan Smarg attended with his girlfriend Mariah Chambers!
 
We are incredibly grateful to Patty and Jolly Gissell for hosting the party at their beautiful home! Here is Patty with her sister, Sally Lamp. They all worked so hard and were such kind hosts!
 
 
 
 
 
A highlight of the house is upstairs where Jolly has a whole room dedicated to his incredible and intricate train set!
