Two years ago, I almost missed this important milestone. But now I am walking more than a mile every day and doing Zumba at least once a week, and I feel fantastic. Besides, I have five grandchildren to keep up with, so I should keep active.

When we had our Ghent Woman’s Club meeting and Christmas get-together in early December, we were asked to tell what some of our Christmas memories were and what we would be doing for Christmas.
