  • Oysters make a tasty chowder, much like clams

    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. Since our theme was “Christmas Memories,”  it was a wonderful evening of reminiscing for all of us. We discussed our family’s holiday meal traditions, as well.  We had such a good time.
