Christmas Dinner 2014

Following our recent tradition (since 12.12.12) this event took place on 10.12.14! Sadly the health of 3 of our loyal members - Kirsten, Ann W. and Steen - was not good enough to allow them to be present, so that we were only 17 present.
We returned once more to Les Grenettes, where we have a very nice room with a bar for the apéro. Our traditional Santa came and distributed little prezzies to all present.
It took quite a while to persuade everyone to sit down at table but even then we had to wait a while for the first course, an excellent duck salad. The main course (veal) was also late and very disappointing indeed. However everyone still had plenty to do, Nigel passed round a quiz (poached from St. Ursula's Church) and after allowing plenty of time for discussion gave out the answers - which were sometimes surprising! After the main course Martha handed out Carol sheets and there was much noisy and joyful singing!
The pièce de résistance was the Christmas Pudding organized by Rose-Marie, who also provided the Brandy Butter. This was much appreciated and perhaps an idea to repeat! Finally the President, Hartmut gave a little speech recapping the events of the year and wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2015.
