Woods announced the winners at lunch: Pat Riggs, Joyce Lewis, Rose Auble and Woods.

The next week had Pat Lambert serving the hostess duties and she paired the ladies for the day’s events that produced Nancy Livingston as well as herself as the winners.

Joyce Lewis was the following week’s hostess as she served the morning food items and then selected the day’s events.

Winners for the day included Wanda Spears with two events and Lewis with one.

Sharon Fox took her turn as the weekly hostess the following Tuesday for the season’s final weekly event and provided the morning treats.

Fox failed to become the fourth straight hostess to also win an event due to the fact Riggs and Lewis won two events each.
