On Monday, December 12, over 100 members of the Garden Club of Long Beach Island gathered together at Calloway’s Restaurant not only to celebrate the upcoming Christmas and Hanukkah holidays, but to revel in the overwhelming success of the group’s 55th Annual Holiday Tour of Homes, which made its grand return after a two-year hiatus.

Along with a delicious lunch and scrumptious desserts, members enjoyed musical entertainment by Joe Skipper.  After lunch, President Michele Farias had twelve members act out parts in a rousing rendition of The Twelve Days of Christmas. Props were provided as the very talented group enacted the skit! Even Santa Claus made an appearance.

Throughout the event, there were door prizes, plentiful gift baskets and a 50/50 raffle.  The other half of the 50/50 prize was donated to the Saint Francis Food Pantry along with an abundance of food items given by our members. Also collected from the club, a bounty of new toy items for the Ship Bottom Police Department which will benefit the Toys for Tots program. As members were leaving the event, they were surely overwhelmed by the donations they collected.

Many thanks to our sparkly luncheon chair, Joyce Lubach and her incredible team for a fun-filled afternoon. Their time and effort created a successful event!
