Mix together and chill. Calories 330, total fat 1.6 gm, Sat. fat 0 gr., Cholesterol 93.6mg, sodium 1686 mg., Calories from fats, 4%. Enjoy.

THOUGHTS: As activities start to "wind down" somewhat, we can look back on another pleasant, successful year at Kings Gate Club. Many people have worked very hard and long to make things "happen." If you know someone who has worked extra hard for US, do stop and thank them. It takes the combined efforts of many to make Kings Gate Club so successful! --SJB.
