The Holiday Party was spectacular.  It was better than last year - and that one was over the top.  Santa made a surprise visit (and he was very naughty).  He could be caught kissing all the women in the room.  His elf couldn't control him!  The door prizes were better than last year, and the DJ - John Riddel - had everyone on the floor dancing.

I wish to thank the following folks who supported me with door prizes, and I ask your support of the businesses who supported our Venice Sailing Squadron:

Ken and Phyllis Nolan - two gift baskets
