Mariners are a group from Westover Hills that meet on a quarterly basis for food and fellowship. Meetings are held in December, March, June and September. Everyone is welcome. Hosts volunteer for each meeting and decide where the meeting will be held – either at a restaurant or in the home of the hosts. In December, the group usually meet in the Fellowship Hall for their Christmas party and white elephant gift exchange. The hosts typically serve meat and bread, and all other participants bring either a salad, dessert, vegetable or appetizer. After the meal, the fun begins as white elephant gifts are selected and opened. There have been many hilarious moments at past white elephant evenings!
