On behalf of the entire Buckeye Santa Family we extend our heartfelt sympathies to Santa Sandy Andromeda on the death of his younger brother, Scott McKitrick. His obituary is posted on our Facebook page and on the funeral home's website: Click for funeral home link.
I thank all who were able to make our January meeting. Nicer weather certainly
helped us to have one of our largest turnouts and several NEW members!
Here is the agenda for Febuary 8th meeting:
We will start by having everyone gather around our Christmas tree for a group photo,
and a photo of the new Board Officers. We will follow that with prayer and then LUNCH!
Our 'PotLuck Magician', Cathi Rank, once again did an outstanding job of organizing a diverse menu of delicious foods. Cathi generally posts the menu on our Facebook group page. If you can bring something to share please coordinate with Cathi Rank, Phone (614)323-5547 so that we don't end up having a lot of the same items!
After lunch we will have a short teaching moment concerning conversation about what you wish to have done with your Christmas wardrobe. Then we will get to the White Reindeer exchange. You bring a gift and receive a red ticket, bring two gifts and get two tickets! We will wrap up with time for those who did not get to share about their season at last meeting!
IF BAD WEATHER POSTPONES the meeting, it will be scheduled for the following Saturday (15th)
Hoping to see all of you at our second meeting of the year scheduled for the second Saturday in February at 11:00AM.
Lutheran Reformation Church, 1355 South Hamilton Rd Columbus. Click for map
Doors open at 10:30am.
May every day still be like Christmas.
"With family and friends, Christmas never ends!"
We look forward to seeing everyone, but please travel safely. And, as always, if Franklin County Sheriff has issued travel advisory of Level 1 or higher the meeting will be cancelled. The Sheriff of Franklin County (Columbus area) would put that information on their website Click for Franklin Co. Sheriff's website
Santa RJ and Doreen donated a large Christmas tree, added lights and a few decorations and a Santa tree skirt to use at our meetings. Doreen gave out about 120 or more clear glass ornaments for people to decorate and bring to add to our tree decorations. Or, you may bring an ornament of your own choice!

At our recent Round Table, our Honorary Member, Stacia Cohagan, performed/demonstrated quite a few beard care techniques, as well as showing off her new Scheduling Website to simplify getting your haircare appointments made at Shag Hair Studio without having to contact her directly! It is a pretty slick operation from what I saw.
