Holiday Hoopla

TRSG members exchange Christmas ornaments during the December meeting and usually a game is played to pass around the wrapped ornaments to determine who will receive the gifts.  Because of Covid, this year’s exchange took place by mail.  Members who wanted to participate submitted their names to the Program Chair. Names were drawn to match up members and ornaments were mailed out early enough so that everyone opened their gift during the Zoom meeting.

Here are pictures of some of the ornaments created by TRSG members this year:

The ornament exchange is always such fun, and the best part is seeing the variety of beautiful ornaments. While we couldn’t be together in person this year, we were still able to see each other virtually, exchange our ornaments, and have some fun.
