2012 Holiday Party

The Holiday Party was held on December 30 at the Summer House in Shoreview.  The food and friendship was plentiful.  Fritz, Basil, and Mike all provided entertaining Pen themed puzzlers for the Members and spouses.  Once again, we awarded prizes for the prettiest and ugliest pens, and had a gift (pens, of course) exchange.  Thank you to the Summer House for their hospitality, and to Fritz for spearheading this fun evening.

Unfortunately, the Webmaster was having such a good time that he did not take many photos this year. Here are a couple of the “quiz tables”.
