Lions End Year with Good Cheer

It’s tradition.  Beef Tartare, Prime Rib, Entertainment, Poinsettias, the Editor’s Camera, and Good Cheer.  All are part of the tradition of the Victoria Lions Annual Christmas Party.  The delicious dinner was served by Arlene Schroeder, Cathy Webster, and Jean Heger.  Poinsettias were purchased in abundance and given as gifts to the Lions’ wives.  Thank you, Lions, for a nice Christmas party, held  December 2nd.
