Club Branches Celebrate the Holidays

Kingston Branch Dinner – 22 Nov

Article by 8170 Keith Orton

The fall dinner for the Kingston Branch was held on Thursday November 22 in the Commandant’s dining room of the Senior Staff Mess. The room was beautifully decorated for the occasion with candles and poinsettias to help get everyone in the holiday spirit. The meal consisted of salad, stuffed breast of chicken, vegetables, and pumpkin cheese cake followed by tea and coffee.

Although attended by a group of only twenty-eight people, everyone seemed to have a good time and several asked when the next event would be held.
