Holiday Cheer
2006 Christmas Party

These are a few pictures from one of our annual traditions - a Club Christmas Party.  In 2006 it was held in the lovely home of Rich and Barb Cutler, located on Lake Conroe.  Even Santa made it to the festivities.

Another view of the centerpiece - it and the food helped make the kitchen a popular spot!
