The Christmas dinner meeting of the Just-A-Mere Garden Club was held at the home of Beverly Best on Dec. 5. The Best home was festive for Christmas with lighted trees and an array of lovely decorations.
The hostess asked the blessing prior to a delightful buffet meal. “Dee-licious” pork, sweet potato casserole, green beans, stewed potatoes, cranberry congealed salad, and rolls were served along with tea and coffee. The dessert was a variety of cookies brought in by the club members. The hostess and half of the membership list contributed to the meal. Each member was asked to bring cookies for the cookie swap.

For the devotion, Dixie Honeycutt shared a Christmas reading followed by the group singing “Away in a Manger.”
