The year-end holiday party was a big hit among the members.  Caterer extraordinaire, Armando Orlando, provided a sumptuous meal of baked ziti, chicken marsala, salad, and beverages.  The men enjoyed a gift swap under the direction of Jack McDermott and his lovely assistant, Vanna White, er, Robert Maber.  It was noted that many gifts were easy to identify as bottles, despite the gift wrapping.

Our own inimitable, Tom Cameron, actually stole this from any gift recipient in a swap. Somehow fitting for our 63-year member.
