Chapter Meeting Minutes
December 07, 2008



The December meeting of Gateway Decorative Artists was our annual Christmas Party. It was held on Sunday, December 7th, at Andre's Restaurant. The cost was $22.00 per person which included a buffet dinner and open bar drinks. Lorie Reece made cute Santa favors for everyone. Joyce Miller gave the invocation. After dinner, we played several fun games and prizes were awarded.


The Installation of Officers for 2009 took place, as follows:

President ---------------------------------- Gloria Falk

Vice President --------------------------- Jim Lair

Membership Secretary --------------- Jo Lair

Program Chairman --------------------- Lorie Reece

Treasurer ------------ -------------------- Donna Wessel

Recording Secretary ------------------ Jean Rogenhofer

Newsletter Editor ----------------------- Ingrid Oertli


After the Installation of Officers, Mary Jo Kumer presented the Gold Brush Award to Jean Rogenhofer. Mary Jo placed the Gold Brush necklace on Jean and gave her two beautiful plaques.


Everyone that brought an ornament for the ornament exchange got in a circle and played the Wright Family story game. At the end of the story, they kept the ornament they ended up with.


After visiting a while longer, Christmas wishes and hugs were exchanged before going home. Everyone had a good time and thought Lorie did a great job with the party.


Respectfully Submitted,

Jean Rogenhofer, Recording Secretary
