Cancer Resource Center in Alamogordo, New Mexico Holds Volunteer Christmas Party

December 12, 2016

Volunteers gathered at Carino's Restaurant for the Cancer Resource Center Christmas Party hosted by Center Chair Sue Baker. Sue gave a brief overview of clients served during this past year and everyone enjoyed some delicious Italian food. This is the third party I've attended this holiday season where they played the Chinese Auction game and it was FUN! Sue also gave us a Christmas Trivia Quiz and it was really hard. Doug Kerr won with 19 correct out of a possible 29 answers. He asked me to pick the prize and it was a complete adult coloring kit.

Sue made sure this young lady got the Christmas teddy bear
Rosi got a bag with a number of items in it
One of the items was this elf hat and Rosi thought Jerry should be wearing it

Jerry got a lovely crystal drum bowl
Delton got the "bird" parrot and a $20 Visa Card
Rosi looks on while Carla and Jean discuss the parrot that Delton got, but being a nice guy, he gave it to Jean
The auction items were quite varied and I think all in all everyone was pleased with what they got or traded for. Each guest received a gift bag of goodies including scrumptious tins of creme de Pirouline cream filled wafers. The parrot was an auction gift last year and was re-gifted. I believe it is being flown to Colorado to join a live Macaw at Jean's relatives.

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr, Photography for the great photos.

This is all I have to say for now.
