A Very Merry Holiday Party
Our 2018 season went out with a bang as we gathered for golf at Scholl Canyon, followed by a buffet luncheon at Acapulco in a terrific holiday celebration filled with good cheer and great friends. The Holiday Party Committee (Donna Coleman, Lauren Suzuki, Barb Trivison, Angie Charky, Debra Lissebeck
) outdid themselves, providing thoughtful gift bags and cosmetic kits for each member, along with a super useful booklet highlighting 2019 rule changes. They put together a fantastic assortment of gift baskets for the opportunity drawing and silent auction, to which many members donated items. The over $2500 raised in the drawings and silent auction help fund club activities in 2019, including after-round snacks at monthly events, and special event subsidies. As part of our Chapter's giving back to the community, we filled up 8 Toys for Tots boxes, and helped raise $315 for the First Tee in the 50/50 drawing, with Jennifer Yguico
winning the other half.
Outgoing President Barbara Trivison
was lauded for her leadership over the past two years by incoming President Holly Schroeder
, who also served as MC for the day. Volunteers were recognized for serving as Captains-of-the-Day at our monthly events, and Board Members and volunteers were given gifts in appreciation for their service.Thank you to everyone who signed up to be a Captain at our 2019 monthly events and to serve on committees at our special events. In case you missed your chance to volunteer, we would still love to have you. Contact Debra LIssebeck
for more information.
and Roberta Kantola
were richly rewarded for winning the day's low putts and chip-in contests, respectively. Edith Apuya
stole the show for Most Festive Outfit with her Christmas Tree/Mrs. Santa outfit, facing stiff competition from many spirited entries amongst our uber-creative members. Special recognition was given to Jennifer Yguico
as our Most-Improved Golfer, based on her handicap index improvement factor (she also won her flight in the National Biggest Loser contest). And last but not least, Kathy Malmfeldt
was awarded this year's match play tournament President's Cup Trophy, defending her title and holding the distinction of being our Chapter's only three-time winner!
The festive day showcased what an extraordinary group of women make up our Chapter. We look forward to many more good times in 2019. For all of the day's photos, head over to our Facebook page gallery.
