Great Time Had by All

On Saturday, Horizon held its annual family holiday party. A large turnout enjoyed a sensational buffet lunch while visiting with fellow Horizon members. There was even a special guest appearance by Santa Claus himself. The kids receive presents while telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas. Best of all Santa was kind enough to take a group picture and photos will be available on the web site soon. Thanks to everyone who put together this wonderful holiday party.

Thanks to shopping weekend organizers

The Annual Horizon Shop with a Friend Weekend was a blast. A lot of members gathered for a fun afternoon of shopping and a relaxing evening spent with friends. Believe it or not, several people even accomplished the task at hand, their holiday shopping. One participant spent over $600 shopping, we just wonder how much of that were gifts for other people. For more information click on the shop with a friend link under activities.

A special thanks goes to the individuals who worked hard to plan this event. From what I saw, everybody had a wonderful time. Maybe we should do this more often???
