Christmas Party Photos


The Spade & Trowel Christmas Party was held on Tuesday, December 29, 2015, at Abbott's on Broad Creek in Laurel.  A cold buffet lunch was served. Everyone was in a festive mood (especially since the greens sale and flower show were over) and ready to just have fun.  The room and each table was decorated very nicely.  A fun game of "pass the gift bag" took place; as well as, a silent auction.  A special thank you goes out to those who helped coordinate this event.
