The Laurel Saddle Friends held its annual Christmas banquet on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at the VFW in Delmar. It was a special evening for several members. Marilyn McConnel received the highest award given by the club — honorary membership. She has served as treasurer for 10 years, taking on a number of responsibilities as well as willingly performing many other things beyond the office.
Mildred West was honored as the last of the original founders of the organization and Pansy Plummer received a certificate of appreciation for her dedication and dependability. A bit of poetry, fun gifts, door prizes and patriotic remembrances were extended to our veterans and to those serving to protect our country now. An enjoyable evening was shared by all.
There will be a Christmas open house at the Delmar Library on Dec. 20, starting at 6:30 p.m. Steve Cooper will provide the musical entertainment. The friends group will furnish light refreshments.
There will be a really special guest that night. You can park anywhere around the library except on the rooftop. That is reserved for our special guest. He has a real big vehicle and lots of animals.
