In addition, just the last few months we as a group have donated the following items:

        1. The field trip to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at L.A. County USC Medical Center Children’s Hospital will be rescheduled for Saturday, January 23 at 10:00am.
        2. We are collecting items to deliver that day at the December and January meetings. Items needed are booties, tube socks, hats, and blankets, all in preemie or newborn size. The items should be machine washable soft acrylic.
        3. Because parking at the hospital is limited, we will arrange 2 or more car pools to leave from the parking lot on Florencita behind The Black Cow Restaurant in the Montrose Shopping Park. Becky Goodman and Mary Kaye Busalacchi volunteered to drive.
        4. A sign-up sheet and maps will be available at the January meeting.
What a work of love, sacrifice, and kindness this is! Thank you all for your amazing generosity.
    E. White Elephant Gifts    Judy Gregory and Cindy Vogel
        1. Judy and Cindy designed and conducted an excellent variation of our traditional White Elephant Gift Exchange game.
        2. Each person drew a number but had to decipher a knitting or computer abbreviation. Then each participant got to draw from a goodie bag of yarn before picking the white elephant gift and opening it. It was fun and different.

Thanks to Evelyn for organizing the evening and to Judy and Cindy for the entertainment!
And thanks to all of you for the delicious food!
