I am like a little orphan child on this first Saturday in over two years with no Saturday Scavenger Hunt to post! I feel compelled to show you pictures, so guess what? You get to have a rare glimpse into the fabulous City of Arcadia Employee Holiday Party! Yes, it is very early in the season for a "holiday" party. We assume it is so that it doesn't interfere with more fun and interesting obligations later in the month.
The nice thing is there is a good dinner and many raffle prizes. But it is also where employees are recognized for 5, 10, 15, etc years of service. They only do actual presentations for people with 20 or more years. This particular time there were about 15 people being recognized. This one lady at the library...let's call her Drama Queen, actually has 35 years. Guh. Although I guess if I'm lucky, in 27 years that will be me. Okay, anyway, the supervisors handing out the awards tended to go on and on and on. Sort of like me, here, now...but times it by 15 people, okay. Yeah. But parts of it were fun! Here look:
They got some snow or something snow-like to cover the ground outside the community center. Festive, eh? For those of you who live in snow, let me assure you that it quickly melted away and we didn't have to do any pesky shoveling or putting chains on our cars or anything. It was just for prettiness!
Oh, don't I look dapper by these giant lollipops? This was after the award presentations. You are witnessing relief and elation.
On the way out, Milly and I snagged a passing Good Samaritan to photograph us in front of the "holiday" tree. Nothing says Happy Holidays like a tree!
Thank you for joining me on this little stab at Saturday normalcy. I know I'll get over the Scavenger Hunt some day. But until then expect pictures. Thank you.
