Christmas 2010

Members of the Spanish American Club, Inc. celebrated Christmas

By Herman Santa

The members of the Spanish American Club, Inc. celebrated a Christmas Party on Saturday December 18 at a private club house in Port St. Lucie.  The president of the club Jimmy Rivera and his wife Kathy welcomed everyone to the event.  Admission was free for the members and $10 for their guests that included dinner and door prizes.  The meal consisted of pastas, pork, chicken, potatoes, rice and vegetable medleys. A table was set with a birthday cake as dessert with coffee and refreshments.

All the December Birthday members that were present were asked to stand near the big birthday cake while we all sang “Happy Birthday” to them.  Among them were Kino Velez, Joe Castro, Nilda Betancourt, Gustavo Santa, Mary Figliola, Kathy Rivera, Jimmy Rivera and Virginia Feliciano.  Our 50/50 winner was Norma Castro and the Hat Dance Contest winner was Mary Figliola.

After the meal, our entertainment took the floor.  D.J. Alex Mendoza from “Mendoza Sound” did a terrific job entertaining us with his repertory of dancing music from back in our day to modern music like reggaeton, salsa, line dance, etc.  Door prizes winners were Isa Bryson, Mercy Roman and Cecilia Pulido.

It was a great Christmas party, every one enjoyed the evening.  Thanks to the board of directors and to the members that made donations for the door prizes and for the Christmas Toys for needy kids.  A big thank you goes to Nora Candelario and her husband Robert, Delia Diaz and her son Victor Casiano for hosting the party.

The club sponsor scholarships, donates thanksgiving certificates and Christmas toys for low income families.  The club also donates non perishable articles to help our troop and school supplies for local schools.   Board meetings are held the first week of the month at the board members houses and the members meet once a month at a clubhouse or members residences to eat, socialize and dance.
