Christmas time

The FSD Christmas party was a jolly good time! Everyone mingled over refreshments and delectable nibbles at the Ramada Inn lounge.

There were games aplenty. Teams went head to head in Family Feud; high-energy Minute-to-Win-It challenges took holiday-party hilarity to a whole new level. Cliff Robinson and Adele Huculak were fabulous in Fast Money! Psychic Erica Von Kcaat told fortunes and read tarot cards.

Thanks to Sarah Ladd, Meaghan Hagerty, Sandy Devick, Judy Macdonald, Marion Oke and Meg Durvin for their efforts.

From our family to yours, have a happy, healthy holiday season.
