Wednesday, Dec 3rd, 2014

Our first meeting of December was held on Wednesday, the 3rd, and had 19 attendees, 7 of whom are FWA members. The feedback from the last meeting with Dr. Ryan G. Van Cleve was overwhelmingly positive, and we will ask him to return sometime in the future. We had one new guest, and several of our winter residents joined us for the first time this season as well. The security light in the parking lot was out, and despite the best efforts of the Nokomis Fire Department, obstinately refused to illuminate our parking area. Attendees solved the problem at the end of the meeting with their car headlights until everyone was underway.

We had 12 readers, reading everything from poetry to first time memoirs and ran out of time before our last two readers got to the podium. They'll be at the head of the reader list on Dec 17th, to be followed by our Christmas get-together. Readers were asked to bring light, or seasonal material for the readings, and goodies and cookies to the meeting. The firemen make short work of any leftovers! Any stocking caps or old, ugly, Christmas sweaters will be welcome!
