WIT & WISDOM CLUB
Members of the Wit & Wisdom Club enjoyed their annual Christmas party Friday evening in the Great Hall of Fairfield Golf & Country Club.
A tall Christmas tree was in the room, and each of the tables had seasonal decorations. Hosts for the evening were Joneane and Gene Parker, assisted by Don and Jean Wallace and Gene Copeland. Club President Sheri Neff presided over a brief business meeting prior to the serving of the dinner.
After the meal had been completed, Joneane Parker introduced Fairfield High School Bandmaster James Edgeton and the school’s jazz band, as the program for the evening. The group entertained the audience with familiar Christmas music in different arrangements. The band received a standing ovation. Prior to the program, “the hat” was passed and the proceeds were turned over to Edgeton along with an announcement that the club had raised some $300, which Edgeton said would help finance the band trip that is planned for later in the school year.
The first meeting of the New Year is scheduled for Jan. 11. Time and place will be announced later.
