ne e rl mas By CARMEN YATES HARSTINE - Thirty folks, ranging from the very young to some mighty wonderful senior citizens, gathered at the Community Hall early Friday evening. The festivities got started with a pot luck supper The food ranged from pretty salads to chicken and casseroles and even a codfish in cream sauce with potatoes and desserts. After everyone was stuffed to the hilt and leasurely enjoying another cup of coffee the Master, Phil Chapman suggested that we include with roll call a treasure of past Christmases from each of our memory banks. That proved to be a very delightful interlude that ranged from nostaligic to humorous. el Many hands make short work of large jobs and the dishes were soon sloshed to sparkling cleanliness and the kitchen department was taken care of in fine fashion. By this time everyone's dinner had settled in comfortably and Becky Chapman, daughter of the Master had a couple of fun games ready for everyone to join. First, two teams were chosen and after two lines were formed each member of the number one team was given a large paper bag and they were asked to remove their shoes and put them in the bag.

The second game had each member of the same two teams place a spoon in their mouth and pass a marshmallow down the line to see which teams could finish first. Then for a bit of rest after all the hilarity and exuberance the games exerted on everyone, song books were passed around and Celia Glaser took her place at the piano to accompany the group in a number of real old-fashioned genuine Christmas carols. The grand finale was the exchange of gifts that had lain temptingly under the lovely Christmas tree all evening. To the accompaniment of tearing paper and ohs and ahs the group all marveled at the cleverness of the various gifts the others had come up with and still keep within the set price range. Sometimes this takes considerable ingenuity in these inflationary days. All in all everyone agreed it had been a most enjoyable evening and everyone parted feeling a wonderful warm glow to tide them over the next few busy hectic days before the DAY. The Harstine Community Club graciously showed a touch of good will by allowing the Agate 4-H Livestock members the use of the hall for their Christmas party this Thursday evening It is goodly sized group and the only other place they could locate for the party was the Lake Limerick Barn which seemed a bit more suited for summer doin's somehow. Six Islanders. the John Budds, John Dunlaps, Bob Ireland, and yours truly attended a very productive meeting of the Pioneer School Board last week. ltope more and more Islanders wilt contJlme to go and support the candidate they elected ahnost unanimously in the coming months.
