Purple Hat Group (week of January 3, 2018)

The Purple Hat ladies of Southern Aroostook traveled to the Smyrna Merrill Historical Society to enjoy their December meeting.

The dining area was decorated for Christmas with beautiful greenery bouquets, a glowing, warm fireplace and a table set for a feast.

Marie Gillotti opened the meeting with a Christmas reading and a blessing on the food.

Betty Wyman celebrated a birthday this month and members sang “Happy Birthday” to her.

Our sock exchange was completed by playing a right and left game to “The Night Before Christmas.”

Members paired up to do a Christmas Mad Lib. Some good ideas were used to complete these and then read to the group.
