‘Keep Christ in Christmas’ poster contest winners

The true “Reason for the Season” is often lost in all the commercialism and hoopla of gift-giving, but members of Sacré Coeur Council 5499, Knights of Columbus, are doing something about that.

The Crowley Garden Club held its annual Christmas luncheon at the home of Marilyn Lawson on Tuesday, Dec. 13. The members enjoyed time socializing before sitting down for a delicious meal provided by hostesses Christie Brammer, Marlene Brantley, Janis Coignard, Sissy Gall, Ruth McBride and Georgie Petitjean. Rather than exchange gifts, the ladies brought items to be donated to a local women’s shelter. They also participated in a floral “Design in a Bag” activity that matched two teams against each other in designing fresh floral arrangements using the same materials. On hand for the holiday event were, kneeling and seated front from left, Carol Trahan, Bobbie delaHoussaye, Ruth McBride; standing, Isabella delaHoussaye, Judy LeJeune, Lawson, Brantley, Brammer, Joan Hoffpauer, Gall, Petitjean, Judy Guillot and Charlotte Freeland.
