TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; The Christmas season got of to a delightful start at the Annual Seniors Christmas party sponsored by the Truckee Sunrise Rotary Club.

A festive atmosphere spread through the Truckee Donner Senior Apartments Community Dining Room as almost 50 residents enjoyed a sumptuous buffet dinner and an evening of entertainment.

Emcee, Club President Jamie Brimer, welcomed the guests and introduced the organizers and entertainers.

The entertainment highlight of the evening was a Christmas serenade by the fourth grade Junior Girl Scout Troop 116 and their sisters. Capably led by co-leader Kaesa Aanestad Moore, the young ladies sang a variety of Christmas songs ranging from Jingle Bells, with sound effects, to Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Christmas gift bags were distributed by the Club to the seniors.

The Truckee Sunrise Rotary Club would like to thank Coordinator Dr. Bryan Pierce and the following benefactors: Bud Haley of JAX at the Tracks, salad and ham preparation; John Witney of Eventmasters, serving equipment; Truckee Sourdough, bread; and generous Rotarians for side dishes, beverages and ham.
