Another year has gone and here we are in 2020. Who would have believed the �me would have passed so quickly? Along with the en�re year of 2019, December sped through like a rocket and like every year, was a busy month for Christmas par�es. December 7th, President Barney Brock, Board Director Cindy David and her husband Kenny and Execu�ve Vice President Teri Gibson had the honor of celebra�ng Christmas with the 363rd Training Squadron. As always it was a blast. Their event planners sure do a great job of coming up with a fantas�c venue, good food, awesome games and super gi�s. The evening started with a social hour to mix and mingle. During this �me a�endees had the opportunity to put �ckets, they had received when they registered, in various prize buckets. Some of the prizes that could be won were a BBQ Basket with different types of spices, rubs, sauces etc., a robo vacuum with a gi� basket of pampering items, a liquor basket, a decora�ve bucket full of wine, a gi� basket full of gi� cards to businesses in Wichita Falls and a Nintendo game. This was just a handful of prizes that could be won. There were some other major prizes that consisted of a $400.00 gi� card toward a gun and a weekend to Great Wolf Lodge. There were two Angel trees that had envelopes on them and �ckets were drawn for a chance to pick an envelope off the tree that also had a prize in it. Cindy David was lucky enough to have her �cket number drawn and won a Texas Road House gi� card. The event was held at the MPEC Center with Spectrum catering a delicious meal of Lasagna, Chicken Alfredo, Salad, Green Beans and Garlic Toast. The Christmas décor was awesome! There was a great turn out of people dressed fes�vely, semi-formal and formal and many pictures were taken. Some were posing in front of the decorated Christmas trees while others were taking selfies at their tables. Everyone was eager to par�cipate in the team games. Several minute to win it type games were played and it was as much fun to watch as it was to be involved. One game contestants were given a �ssue box that was �ed around their waste with ping pong balls inside. The opening was facing outward and the object was to shake and jump around un�l all their balls had come out. Another game, teams had to decorate one of their members to be the best wrapped Christmas present. The winner was chosen by the applause of the audience. It was a close compe��on for sure! Throughout the evening there was prize drawings, dancing while the D.J. played all types of music and games conducted with individuals and groups. There was never a dull moment. It was a very Merry Christmas Party! Thank you 363rd for allowing the North Texas Home Builders Associa�on to be a part of your group!

On December 10th the NTHBA had their Annual Christmas party. 120 people a�ended the event and began the evening with a social hour feas�ng on shrimp cocktail and mingling. Around 7 PM President Barney Brock welcomed everyone and thanked them for a�ending. A few announcements were made along with recognizing and thanking the 2019 NTHBA Partners: Gold partners (Guarantee Title Company & Union Square Credit Union), Silver partners (American Na�onal Bank, First Na�onal Bank, On Site Solu�ons and Texoma Community Credit Union). Special guest were also recognized, Lt. Colonel Olson and his wife Chris�na and Mike White and his wife Nelva of the 363rd Training Squadron and Wichita Falls Fire Chief Ken Prillaman and his wife Deb. Eddie Holcomb gave the invoca�on and then a dinner of ribeye steaks, loaded mashed potatoes, salad and cobbler were served around 7:15. A�er guest had the opportunity to eat, President Barney Brock asked Fire Chief Prillaman to come up and accept the many toys donated by members who a�ended the Christmas Party. Chief Prillaman spoke to the crowd and expressed the apprecia�on of the en�re Wichita Falls Fire Department for the generosity of the NTHBA members and their con�nued support of the WFFD Opera�on Santa. He men�oned he had not been in Wichita Falls but a couple of months but was very moved by how compassionate and giving the Wichita Falls Community is. He said without the support of the community, the WFFD would not be able to con�nue Opera�on Santa and help so many have a Christmas who would not have been able to have one. A�er Chief Prillaman finished, President Barney Brock had the Jason Hollis Band play and guest began to dance. Periodically throughout the night, Barney would stop the band and drew �ckets for guest to win door prizes. A�er a few �cket were drawn, Barney changed up a li�le and told guest the first one to be able to show him some fes�ve socks would get the door prize. Barney was not disappointed. We had some very fun loving a�endees who were all about the season and Kevin Rhine took the prize. Another item asked for was a red pocket knife, which Jim Smith just happened to have on his key chain, a measuring device that Kaycee Ryan brought to our a�en�on, there is an app for that and a picture of a chicken which could be an actual picture or drawn, at which we did have quite the ar�st in Lindsey Sheppard. Then it was back to the �ckets. A�er all the last batch of door prizes were given away, it was back to the band and the dance floor. Everyone had a great �me and many members were gracious enough to s�ck around and help clean up. A big thank you to Blake and Chelsie Seyler, Mike & Nelva White, Billy & Robin Brock, Dianne & Barney Brock, Paige Schlumpf, Eddie Holcomb, Jim Gibson and any others that I may have missed that had a hand in helping set up or cleaning up. A big thank you to everyone who a�ended and par�cipated in the Opera�on Santa with their gi�s. A big thank you to those who donated door prizes: Brazos Window & Door, Breegles, Cindy David, Hughes & Sons LLC., Lance Friday Homes, Lowes, Nelva White, Pilgrim Bank, Servpro,
