Today I attended the annual Christmas luncheon for JOY (Just Older Youth) at church. Our excellent meal was catered by Johnny Carino’s. We enjoyed the special program. First, the Acorns to Oaks pre-K children sang three songs and gave each JOY member a hand-made Christmas card. Then we had a sing-along with Fine Arts Director Mary Ellen Johnson and J J Placencio providing the music, ending with “Feliz Navidad”. There was a drawing for door prizes of the centerpieces. I must have been at the “lucky” table because four of us were winners. The program ended with a special message from Pastor Emeritus Rob Harrell.
Seen on veterinarian’s marquee on South Lamar: Feliz Naughty Dog. From now on I will be reminded of this every time I hear “Feliz Navidad”!
