We welcomed new members! Showed parents and children how to play lawn bowls and graces, helped youngsters walk on stilts, and introduced old games to lots of folks. Donated funds to replace a window at Chatham Manor. Practiced English country dances and performed at Salubria, in the great hall at Stratford Hall and for the runners of the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon. Served tea. Sang Christmas carols. Drew shift patterns. Gathered fresh greens and crafted over a hundred holiday wreaths for our annual fundraiser. Taught the Morning Gazette to elementary school children. Prepared and roasted a chicken in front of an open hearth stuffed with pennyloaf, suet, veal and spices. Led tours of historic Fredericksburg cemeteries. Sewed. And we had a lot of fun!
