2012 GCHWC Holiday Party

December 2012:   GCHWC’s 4th Annual Holiday Party
Time passes quickly and the holidays came upon the GCHWC once again!   For our fourth annual holiday party, the gang gathered at a brand new location (Zion Church in Norwood, Ohio) to spread some holiday cheer.

The club enjoyed new events such as the Christmas Cookie Exchange…

The crowd rallied around yearly favorites such as the holiday potluck supper, door prizes, split the pot and the “Steal the Santa Gift Exchange”

The holidays can’t be complete without a tree decorated with light-up diecast and Dave’s very “Kiss” Christmas
