Happy New Year


The Princesses had their Christmas party December 14th at Jane Hilt's home. A very enjoyable time was had by all present. Florence Fulton was in charge of the games with prizes for all the smart winners. The gift exchange was done in a very unique way. Each Princess was given a line of a Christmas poem. The next line was pasted on the gift, and if you were smart enough to know the line, you picked your gift. There were 19 Princesses present.
