SACI’s Thanksgiving Party

By Herman Santa

Members of the Spanish American Club, Inc. (SACI) hosted the Annual Thanksgiving Party on Saturday, November 21, 2009 at Dana and Maite Peterson residence in Palm City.  The members and guests enjoyed an evening of camaraderie, delicious food and music.  After the dinner the scholarship committee held a raffle for the door prize donated by Nancy Rozon.  The winner was Reinaldo Matias.  The members donated unwrapped Christmas gifts for children between the ages of 6 months to 10 years old.  The gifts were given to Agueda Mejia, director of the Christmas gifts committee who will distribute them in Indiantown, Golden Gate and Hobe Sound.

The members also donated school supplies for kids of low income families.  The school supplies will be distributed by Kathy Rivera, Mary Figliola and Nancy Rozon in Martin and St. Lucie counties.  Thanks to the Peterson family for hosting the get together and to the members that donated school supplies and toys for needy children.  Also, thank you to those who were not members, but helped with the Christmas gifts and school supplies donations.
