The Christmas party was hosted by Steve and Sherry Young.

Covered dishes were brought by the rest of the North Star Sams members. We ate, and ate, and ate!

We had a great time with a Christmas gift exchange, which was supposed to be the Chinese Gift Exchange where you get to take gifts previously opened, but everyone liked what they got so much, we had very little swapping!

We also installed our new officers for 2005 and presented our outgoing President, Brian MacPherson, with a Rememberance Pillow, signed by all members. As he and Cheryl go into retirement in the Valley, they can think of us!

Our guests included Jerry Jones and a prospective member couple, Greg and Del Duerr.

The evening ended with a tour of Steve and Sherry's large, VERY Christmas-decorated, house.
