Next Movie Club Gathering December 20th AT 2:00 pm at 48 Lang St. (opposite end of Village from Schoolhouse).  We are fortunate to have a professor and screenwriter offer to lead us in this new activity.   Denise Hagerty will lead us through a movie to help us see more of the symbolism and impact of effects that we may not have noticed previously.  The upcoming movie:

The Shop Around the Corner ~ based on Miklós László’s 1936 play and directed by Ernst Lubitsch, known for his warm and touching films, this 1940 B & W film stars James Stewart, Margaret Sullavan, and Frank Morgan (the actor who played the wizard in The Wizard of Oz).  The storyline (to avoid giving too much away) is about the relationship between two employees in a Hungarian leather goods store.  It received 100% on the Rotten Tomatoes film review site and appears on every top 25 Christmas films.  The film is a sweet, fun, family-friendly film that offers much warmth and heart for the season! 
For additional details, please see the information and documents attached below on this page.

Progressive Celebration on December 24th ~ sharing the holidays with your community.  Three of our members are spearheading a community event that requires an RSVP.  The event will start at Lisa Boemke’s home in Gordon Acres at 3:30 PM, from there it will go to Cornelia Patti’s home in the Village, concluding with Susie and Bobby Ramsdale coordinating the last stop at the Twin Lakes Schoolhouse, 231 Lang.  We anticipate that the event will be over before 8:00 and we will send directions to all who RSVP.  We need you to RSVP by replying to this email or sending an email to by December 21st because, depending upon participation, our coordinators may request help bringing food.

At the Schoolhouse, for those who want to participate, we ask that you bring two gifts under $20 for a “Thieving Elves” gift exchange (to be explained at the event).  You are not obligated to participate, but it should be great fun.  Please bring your favorite beverage to the Schoolhouse.
