For over a decade, friends and neighbors from Seven Lakes West have gotten together to ring in the Christmas holiday.
Residents from Harrell Rd, Glen Cove, Drum Hill Rd, Betz, Paul Rd, Joseph’s Point, Logan Ct and the surrounding homes on Longleaf come together to greet their neighbors, old and new, and enjoy an evening of camaraderie and fun.
This year’s gathering was graciously hosted by Carol and Larry Anderson – and this wouldn’t be the first time they have opened their home for the Christmas party. Shortly after moving to Seven Lakes 10 years ago, the Anderson’s offered the use of their home.
A small committee of volunteers does all the planning. Over the years, guests have been treated to great food and Christmas caroling around the piano. About 50 people gathered this year for the holiday celebration. Good food, good fun and good fellowship is alive and well in Seven Lakes West.
