=The Mason Bluebonnet Study Club met at Mary Hemphill’s lovely home on December 5 to celebrate Christmas and to reflect on blessings received over the past year and to give thanks. A potluck meal was enjoyed by those attending, followed by singing Jingle Bells. Christmas ornaments were exchanged in lieu of gifts. On a sad note, the group learned of the death of Ray Jordan, one of the club’s favorite people. Carol Jordan is a member of the club and she and Ray have hosted the Christmas party in the past.
