Christmas Dinner

The Watch Lake/Green Lake Community Association’s (WLGLCA) Christmas dinner on Dec. 14, at the Watch Lake Community Hall (WLCH), was a huge success with 90 guests attending. The wonderful buffet with an assortment of foods including turkey, ham and all the trimmings was served. After dinner, Santa and Mrs. Santa and their elves arrived with wrapped gifts which were given out to the 16 children attending. Door and basket prizes were also drawn at the end of the evening. Everyone had a great time. A big thank you goes to all of the hardworking volunteers who decorated the community hall, took care of the registration of the guests, helped during the course of the evening and all who brought food for the dinner. Without all of you, this would not have been a success. Thank you again.
