Skihawks Christmas Dinner/Dance 2008

In the great tradition of the Skihawks Christmas Celebrations, our December 6th party was one more grand affair in our history of outstanding social events.

Susan Wertz and Barb Dorn wrought another décor gem bringing their usual, creative genius to bear at the Fort Lewis Golf and Country Club. Each table, with white table covers and red napkins had a beautiful center piece full of shimmering reds and greens. They also set up a big chair with a real live Santa seated in front of our Skihawks banner where everyone could get a souvenir photo. The whole scene was topped off with the theme of “Holiday Glitter” and the ladies took it to heart with lots of shiny, glittering stuff to add to the festive feel of the whole event.

Of course we had hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer service, and an excellent buffet dinner with plenty of time for socializing. Then the music began and the dance floor was packed the rest of the night with our faithful D.J., Leon Crawford, keeping us rockin’ ‘n rollin’ till it was time to turn out the lights.

Naturally, we have already made reservations for the same venue next year. See you there Saturday, December 5th, 2009!              Submitted by Dean Wilson
