Another PARTY

Time for Heritage Writers Guild's Christmas party
at the same location as the poetry party, but the following day.

 We have writers in all genres-Children's books,
Young Adult, Fantasy, Non-Fiction, Mysteries,
Poetry, Romances, History, etc.

Our president (left) Virginia Grenier is a children's author 
while Tom Garrison (r), with his wife in center,
writes for the local paper and on political topics.

 Quite a diverse group of many ages and interests: Amanda (center)
and her dad Jon Thompson (l) with Jelene Kirkland (r).

 I was lucky enough to win 3rd place in our Jack Frost Holiday 
Writing Contest for a story about my Icelandic ancestors.
2nd place was Marie Tollstrup (l) and 1st place-Russ Estlack.

 Long time members of HWG, all experienced writers and poets:
(l-r) Marilyn Ball, Beth Moore, Marilyn Richardson, 
Betty Vickers and Mary Barnes in front.

 Author David Smith writes of his years working at Disneyland

DSC faculty member Carole Western (l) 
and our Treasurer Liesa Hafen (r) with her young son

Congratulations of your win! A nice surprise in the midst of parties. Looks like you enjoy your parties and gatherings. In a tiny town newspaper I read the reports of parties and after each one they said, "A good time was had by all." So now I think of your party, "A good time was had by all."
