    A. Announcements    Members 
        1. Evelyn announced that an article about JCK and all the charity items we made this summer appeared in the Glendale News-Press on Saturday, November 27. She read us the article and showed the photo, a portion of the large photo taken of the whole group by her husband Mark. Our thanks to Sue Dietel who arranged for the article to appear and to Mark for taking the photo.
        2. This meeting was the 8th Annual Holiday Potluck Party and White Elephant Gift Exchange. Our sincere thanks to Evelyn for organizing it, to all who attended and brought food and set-up items, and to Cathy for opening and closing up the room and arranging all the furniture! What a fun evening!
        3. Jerri Thomson announced the JCK display now set up at Eagle Rock Library on Caspar. Many items are shown with cards on which she summarized our various charity projects. Thanks to Jerri for arranging for and setting up this display case.
        4. Sue Dietel has arranged for a similar display case of JCK charity work at the La Canada Library in February. Please bring to the January meeting any items you would like to have shown. These displays are good publicity for our group.
        5. Mary Kaye brought her 2 granddaughters, Bella and Giada to our party. Jerri Thomson's husband Darryl came, as he does each year, and Cindy Vogel brought her mother for the evening.
        6. Evelyn shared that Judy had viral pneumonia and wasn’t able to come to the party. We missed you, Judy! Get well soon!
        7. We heard from Michelle Tang that, sadly, she and her family could not attend this year, as they have every other year. Her daughters had an important rehearsal.  We missed you, too, Michelle.
    B. Philanthropy    Judy Gregory, VP Philanthropy 
        1.  At this meeting we turned in charity items with December deadlines. This month we as a group made 37 holiday baby hats for Kimberly's NICU! Plus there were 2 scarves and 2 hats donated for the troops. Marsha delivered all the Operation Gratitude items for the year after the meeting: we contributed 36 scarves and 17 hats - a total of 53 items for our troops!! We don't have totals for the whole year for all our other charities, but congratulations to all of you who worked on various charity items all year - what a labor of love! You are all amazingly generous with your time and talent! We should feel proud of our accomplishments this year and the good it will do so many people.

        1. Evelyn, Heather, and Diane led the White Elephant Gift Exchange game, in Judy’s absence.
        2. Special thanks to Evelyn for organizing the evening and the game and for everything she does for us all year! And thanks to all of you for the delicious food!
