   Dec. 16 was the Christmas party at the Weippe Discovery Center with Xi Alpha Nu as host. Presents were exchanged and secret sisters revealed. For fun Patty Blain taught how to play bells…they are harder to play than we realized and we can appreciate it when the children at the Christmas program play the bells. One of Alpha Omicron’s service projects was decorating a tree for the Pierce Festival of Trees with a Poinsettia theme.

    The January meeting was hosted by Donna Brown with Kathy Waldron as co-hostess. Kathy Waldron was hostess for the January meeting with Sue Leonard as co-hostess.
