Retired White House Party Chef Roland Mesnier, Christmas Luncheon Chair Angela Ganey

The Dec. 4 luncheon at Columbia Country Club had guests chuckling as special guest Roland Mesnier, Pastry Chef to five presidents, shared insider stories of life in the White House. There were memorable moments and near disasters as he enjoyed rare intimacy with world leaders, the first families and their pets. The event started as Women’s Auxiliary President Debra Push led Christmas carols to set the mood of “fund and fun raising.” Associate Area Commander Major Jacqulyn Reckline said “need knows no season” and spoke of the satisfaction of providing toys to children “looking for a little bit of hope, magic, joy.” Mr. Mesnier graciously autographed several of his books.
