Holiday parties are in full swing in and around Toledo.

The Sew N So sewing club’s annual Christmas Gala “Soulful Santa” was at the Ramada Inn. Members made pillowcase dresses for Little Dresses for Africa. Members also had a display of their sewing projects made throughout the year.

The Christ Child Society annual Christmas party was at The Toledo Country Club. Members donated oodles of children’s books for the group’s Let’s Read program at Rosary Cathedral school.
