On Thursday, December 18, 2014, Middle Peninsula Chapter 1757 of National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) celebrated with a Holiday Party at Olivia's in the Village, Gloucester. The tables were beautifully decorated with holly, poinsettias, and Holiday decorations by Entertainment Co-chair Persons, Judy Mitchell and Lucy Mirabella. They also provided gifts for game winners and door prizes.

After a delicious luncheon, attendees were entertained with an assortment of games, raffles, and door prizes. One of the highlights of the party was a NARFE "Bingo" game when attendees who needed only one number to yell out "NARFE Bingo" were required to stand up and don reindeer antlers with bells. All attendees joined in with the games and had a pleasurable time laughing at themselves and each other as more and more attendees donned their reindeer antlers.
