Chapter Meeting Minutes
December 04, 2005


The Gateway Decorative Artists meeting and Christmas party was held on December 4, 2005 at Vivian's Vineyard in St. Charles, Missouri. All Board members were present.

Members began gathering and visiting when doors opened at 12:00 p.m. Because members were seated in four separate dining rooms, each room was requested to say a separate blessing.

Following dinner, Vada Galvan presided over the installation of officers for 2006.

Laura Heathcote presented the Gold Brush Award to Mary McDevitt.

Debbie Christenson conducted the grand prize drawing of the gift basket for members who had donated Memory Boxes during the year.

Donna Wessel passed out service awards to eligible members. Donna also presented Mary Jo Kumer with the new Outstanding Member charm.

The business meeting was followed by an ornament exchange and Secret Pals were revealed during a gift exchange.

The meeting adjourned at approximately 3 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Donna Wessel
