Christmas Banquet was attended by 41 members. We were all pleased to see Dick and Moira Bentzel – just back from London for the holidays. They are wintering just down river (Thames) from the Tower Bridge. I advised they stay away from the Tower of London lest they loose their heads. Henry VIII may haunt the grounds.
Dick and Moira were gracious enough to make the announcement of the Donovan Award. This year it went to Rick and Julie Palm – two very deserving sailors. Among their accomplishments is a rescue of Persephone during one of last years cruises. The legend of peach pancakes will live on.

The evening’s Italian dinner party was a huge success! Dinner was followed by a really fun game, as evidenced by the faces in the pictures! The cost of the entertainment was $3.00, and for that there was lots of laughter. The winner at each table got to take home the pot for that table.
