What an absolutely wonderful event!

I was thinking before I left home that 4 hours was going to drag out somewhat. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that with such an exciting program and venue, that people just wanted to stay. From the great company at my table, the discussion about what else, the Mercedes-Benz they own/drive, to a very well-organized and thoughtful program to feed and entertain the members.

The hors d’oeuvres were terrific – especially the salmon, my goodness it was so good!

Following a very nicely served lunch, the show began; there were 33 students and 7 teachers from 14 Bay Area schools who participated plus others such as the video team who practiced very hard to certainly make their show as professional and as exciting as possible - they obviously worked their buns off and succeeded! Congratulations to Board President John Goode in making this happen! Great job – you and your enthusiasm are going to be missed when you step down from the Prez position!

Following that terrific show, there was the member’s tenure recognition and acknowledgement of those members who chipped in $100.00 toward the cost of bussing the students to the Spinnaker.

The event had to be the most successful MBCA Christmas party ever, and those members who didn’t attend – you missed out big time!

Again, congratulations everyone who helped make it a success! It was a sellout!
