2012 Joint Christmas Party (MOPH and 40&8)


On Thursday, December 13th, 2012, MOPH Northshore Chapter 741 and 40&8 Voiture 224 held a Joint Christmas Party at our American Legion Post 16 home.
After enjoying Christmas music and a potluck dinner featuring baked ham and roast pork, Elf Terry Sharp hosted a Christmas trivia game that centered around "The Christmas Story" (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out Kid) movie.
Later in the evening we were visited by Santa  (Ron Burkhalter) who had a small gift for everyone present.
Our special guest was Lane Carson and his lovely wife Laura. Lane is the Secretary of Louisiana Veterans Affairs. He is also a member for MOPH Chapter 741 and American Legion Post 16.
Thanks goes to Voyageur Stacy Miller for preparing the Baked Ham and Roast Pork and the Dames of  Cabane Unit 224 for the Christmas gifts and decorations.
