Thursday, December 10, 2015---TGLA at the Valley Hunt Club

What a lovely location for the annual TGLA Holiday luncheon. The Valley Hunt Club in Pasadena was beautifully decorated for the holidays.

Here are the wooden toy soldiers guarding the entrance.
Rosalee Pechersky, Nancy Reed, Carrol Irwin, and Jolene Irwin
As Trojan Candy was taking pictures in the lobby, some TGLA friends came in. I took this picture of Rosalee Pechersky, Nancy Reed, Carrol Irwin, and Jolene Irwin and directed them upstairs.
Christmas tree
I stayed downstairs to take more pictures. In the living room was a Christmas tree.
The fireplace was also decorated.
Just outside the living room was a Nutcracker Mirror.
Boutique items
Another organization was having a Boutique Sale. Here are some items for sale.

Upstairs, Trojan Candy walked around taking pictures of old friends and new friends.

Naturally, when I found out that Peter competed on the USC Track and Field Team in 1958 and 1959, Trojan Candy had to interview him. Peter threw the Shot Put and Discus. His two friends Dallas Long, who was 6'5", and Rink Babka called Peter, "The Runt." At the Grand Re-Opening of Heritage Hall and Hall of Fame Celebration, Trojan Candy gave Rink Babka (2/1/2014) his Heritage Hall Medallion.

Sharon Wood entertained us with a lovely "O Holy Night." What a talent! She posed with Carol Thueson and Patricia Dowling.

We finished our meeting singing carols. Thank you, Mary, for the elegant gift!

What a marvelous way to end our last 2015 TGLA meeting!
