Coastal Friends plan holiday luncheon for Dec. 7


Christmas and all the trappings will come early this year as Coastal Friends (formerly known as Newcomers Alumnae) will hold its monthly Holiday Luncheon from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dec. 7 at Marsh Landing Country Club, 25655 Marsh Landing Parkway, Ponte Vedra Beach. 

Open to the community, members and guests of Coastal Friends will enjoy live holiday music while feasting on sunburst salad with mixed greens, chicken cordon bleu with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables, and the chef’s special dessert.

To help ring in the New Year, many prizes and gift certificates will be handed out, and there will be participation in a Secret Santa gift exchange.

Additionally, an unwrapped toy can be brought for the BEAM/St. Vincent DePaul Society Giving Tree to hand out to local children in the community.
