The December meeting of the Board of Directors of Putnam County Playhouse was held December 7, 2014, at the home of President Michael McClaine and wife Brenda.  Members of the board assembled for food and lively conversation.

An ugly Christmas sweater competition was included!  Most of those attending participated.  By a show of hands, the two winners were chosen.  Runner-up was McClaine in a multi-Santa bedecked crew neck sweater with ribbed cuffs and waistband.  The winner was Kathryn Dory in deckle edged Christmas cardigan with a miasma of holiday knitted appliques - and shoulder pads.

Business was discussed, but attention was divided between Dory's garish garb and the wonderful food that was provided.
