First Community Christmas Party was held at the Edray Center Tuesday, December 21.
Many things have been enjoyed at our Center over a period of years. This Christmas Tree Party was new and was really enjoyed. Edray Home Demonstration Club members furnished punch, coffee, hot chocolate and cookies. Games were played, carols were sung, records enjoyed and gifts were exchanged. The most fun was Santa Claus calling the names of the children and giving them gifts.
Julia Price gave a guest book and everyone signed his name, including first grade children.
Eddie VanReenen, of Eddie’s Service Center, gave the Edray Center a huge punch bowl and cups for the party and for future use.
