Twenty-three Stewardson-Strasburg Area Seasoned Citizens met at noon at the Strasburg Community Center on October 30th for a delicious soup lunch. Not only were there four soups to choose from the desserts were just as good. We had Caramel apple cake, coconut cream cake, persimmon cookies, pumpkin bars, lemon cake, apple pie, brownies and apple bread.
A card was signed for the Gerry and Joyce Weaver, due to Gerry’s health. Connie Wirth won the door prize, and Patty Reed shared a joke. Larry Giertz gave the tip of the day and plans were made for the November meeting.
On November 20th, the S-S Area Seasoned Citizens met for a lunch of sandwiches and salads. The Pledge of Allegiance was said as at every meeting and a prayer before the meal. After the meal, the group shared turkey stories about their experiences and boy were some of them funny. Chris Storm had some trivia about Thanksgiving and the group had a fun afternoon (two hours). The door prize was won by Marilyn Kessler, a turkey platter and some candy.
Due to Christmas falling on our regular meeting day, we will meet on December 18, at noon. The food will be finger foods or party foods. A gift exchange will be a pair of socks. We will play some games and it will be a lot of fun.
