FCS Professionals and their guests gathered at Betty Dangers Supper Club in NE Minneapolis on a chilly December 10th for a festive evening of good food and conversation. There was no formal program for the evening but rather a chance for members and guests to mix and mingle and celebrate the holidays together! For a fun twist, participants in the December program were encouraged to dress in holiday sweaters.
FCS Professionals had much to celebrate! We recognized Debra Zwiefelhofer, our long-time administrative assistant and thanked her for her years of faithful service to our organization. She is retiring but promises to remain a valued member of our organization. She was presented with flowers and gift cards as a token of thanks and well wishes in her retirement. We were excited to introduce our new administrative assistant, Tanya Hamilton! Guests were welcomed as well.
We were treated to a delicious traditional holiday ham dinner. Chef Cesar popped in to introduce the meal and answer a few questions from our group. To end the meal we decorated our own sugar cookies with mini piping bags.
In the spirit of giving, we held a toy drive for Toys for Tots. We collected 26 toys and gift cards as well as $145 in cash donations. Thank you to those who participated and gave so generously!
