* The New River Chapter's 2022 Holiday celebration will again be held at West Jefferson's Ashe County Arts Council from 2:00 PM to 5:30 PM on Sunday, November 20th.

* As always, Chapter members don't usually need encouragement to bring yummy side dishes and desserts to share with fellow party goers as we ALWAYS have a good representation of sweet and savory treats.

* Also there will many holiday libations to help Chapter members and spouses celebrate but members are always welcome to bring along a favorite wine or other drink of their choosing to share..

* For now, wishing everyone a HAPPY THANKSGIVING but plan on being part of our holiday celebration on November 20th and help share in the spirit of the season with fellow New River Chapter members for a joyous Christmas!

New River Chapter Holiday Party

The regular meeting of the New River Chapter was our holiday party and was held at Barbara Sears' home on November 17th...this was a date decided upon by our BOD to defeat ol' man winter who had brought cold and snow to prior years parties resulting in cancellations. Although icy weather occurred on the two days before, the weather on Saturday was characteristic of what is generally ideal for advertising by a town's Chamber of Commerce...that's probably due to the fact that West Jefferson was holding it's annual Christmas parade!!

* Pictured above right were party goers (top down): Hostess Barbara Sears, John Lorentz, Cathy Ehrhardt, Dillis Lorentz, Gloria Block, Jim Block, Mannon Eldreth, Kathy Griffin, Morris, Griffin, Mik Mikulan, Jim Cain, Robin Mikulan and Doug Ehrhardt.

* Pictured below right has Earl Inge standing where Doug was as they exchanged photographer duties!

* A big Chapter welcome is extended to potential new member, John Lorentz and his wife, Dillis, whose name was forwarded by Jim Gee after a social meeting in WJ.

* Open the thumbnail pictures (right) to see the scrumptuous goodies brought by chapter members so that a "good time was had by all"! Thanks to Mik Mikulan for the photos.

* Be sure to see pictures from our members decorating our PATRIOTIC entry for the Ashe County festival of trees by clicking here.
