Annual Christmas Program features something for everyone.
By: Stephen Kent
Leo Najar, Rob Clark, Andy Rogers and the entire club joined together to have a musical program with something for everyone. The program started with Najar on keyboard accompanying Clark who sang several popular Christmas songs including "The 12 Days of Christmas" as only Rob can do it. Many people heard, but could not identify, a secondary accompanyment which proved to be Andy Rogers playing his "squeeze box" while sitting at the front table.
Next, Leo introduced Vickie Bowden, clarinet with the Bijou Orchestra, who accompanied him and Andy Rogers who played violin and sang the Yiddish song "O Chanuke". Everyone got in on the act as Leo began by instructing the audience in the yiddish refrain printed on hand out sheets. In case anyone forgot the words:
Geshvinder, tsindt kinder,
Di Chanuke lichtelech on.
Zogt, Al-hanisim, loybt Got far di nisim,
Un kumt gicher tanstsn in kon!
The final part of the program was a special version of "The 12 Days of Christmas" as composed by the entire club. Tables were numbered off from 4 to 12 and each table was instructed to come up with the gift their table would receive on that day. Rob Clark lead off with the first three days. FOR THE RECORD, the results were:
- First Day: A Green Bay Packers Victory
- Second Day: Help with my wardrobe
- Third Day: Three Books of Camp Songs
- Fourth Day: Four Stinking Skunks
- Fifth Day: Five Golden Perch
- Sixth Day: Six Rotary Wheels a-Turning
- Seventh Day: Seven Salmon Spawning
- Eighth Day: Eight Madyards Dancing (submitted by our Ambassodorial Scholar, Linda)
- Ninth Day: Nine Wolverines
- Tenth Day: Ten Golfers Duffing
- Eleventh Day: Eleven Credit Card Bills
- Twelth Day: Twelve Eggs a Scrambling
