On December 7, 2016, the yuletide festivities were brought "HOME" (Run Inn) by the members of the Grove Players who attended the annual gala. With Linda Surlak in rare holiday spirit, directed a multitude of Christmas-themed entertainments. A rousing rendition of a quirky little ditty called "Christmas is No Time to Diet" highlighted the hopelessness of resisting the sumptuous repast of hearty appetizers, salads, famous garlic bread and fantastic pizzas in which we indulged.
On behalf of Grove Players, President Steven Merkel accepted a grant from The Grove Foundation. At the Foundation's December 6, 2016 meeting, Grove Players was one of six organizations to receive a grant. Grove Players thanks The Grove Foundation for their support of the Arts.
