Christmas Party
December 2, 2000

by Joyce Wolff

The Santa Fe Trail Ranch got the holiday season off to a festive start with the annual Christmas party at Suzie and Jim Davis's home. These two are endlessly generous and gracious. Thank You!

Well over 50 partygoers, including Dan Olin in his Santy hat, and Betty and Jerry Withington's delightful little grandson, Tanner, who partied hard and almost made it through. The group included several new Christmas party faces: newlyweds Davis's daughter Trish and Derik Olin, Derik's sister Nikki Olin, Paula and Larry Marshall, Jan and Chuck Ferrero, Caroline and John Albert, Mike and Mary Jo Shelton, Yvonne and Greg Lynott, (who have purchased the Triebnig home) and DeWayne Harris (who has bought the Russell home). The potluck included every food imaginable and was, in Ranch tradition, plentiful and delicious. (Remember the Ranch cookbook is for sale. Plug, Plug.)

Oh, by the way, Mary Jo, will there really be a new 2002 calendar?
