    Please note that anyone planning on attending the Holiday Party, you must sign up by this Thursday, December 6th, so Karl can make the reservations with LaBamba accordingly.

    Seating is limited so please use the online RSVP on the event page as early as possible to secure your seat for dinner and the party. Thank you for your cooperation. Looking forward to another fun time celebrating the Holiday Season together.

    Please join us for our Holiday Party at LaBamba Restaurant on December 9th at 4pm.
    Celebrate the holiday season with a few adult beverages (coquito), a gift exchange and a wonderful dinner followed by a top down drive through Tradewinds Park to see the Christmas lights show.

    We will finish off our holiday celebration going to Cherry Smash Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor to enjoy some great home made ice cream.

    Please bring a wrapped gift with a value of $15-$20 for our gift exchange at the party. One gift per couple. Also, please remember to bring unwrapped supplies for the Homeless Shelter such as toiletries, socks, deodorants etc.. It is greatly appreciated by those less fortunate than us.

    Hope to see everyone joining us for this year end celebration!

    Personnal Commentary 

    This commentary in no way is approved or reflects the feelings of the club presidents or hierarchy. It is my opinion only. It is very sad to me that in a time of the year when comradery should be at it’s highest levels because of the holiday season, that we could only muster 3 cars to join in the parade yesterday. I know it must be upsetting to those of us other than myself who strive to make this a great club day in and day out to only have 3 cars out of 150 plus members take the time to join in the holiday spirit and show up. Hopefully more folks will decide to join us next year. Hope everyone enjoys their holidays.

      We’ve had a much better presence at this event in the past. I know it’s a busy holiday season, and we all have to make choices about how we schedule our time and resources. This event is different from a simple road trip. It reflects on our group’s standing and reputation in the community. Let’s brainstorm on how to better approach this event, how to instill some enthusiasm and how to help each other decorate the cars. The club has a long history of participating in children’s parades. If the decision is made to continue this tradition, it must with with broad support of the members and we must respect that commitment. If not, let’s look for other avenues of engagement.

      Sorry you feel that way Mark. Maybe it’s not a statement on our holiday spirit. Maybe it’s an indication that club members simply don’t think that particular event is worth attending. It’s possible you are projecting your own enthusiasm for this event onto the membership as a whole. It’s entirely possible the event itself is not as attractive to the membership as you may otherwise think. Actions speak loudly. And yes, I am one of the 147 members who chose not to participate.

      Since all the commentary is from people who didn’t show up, I as one of the 3 cars that did had a great time! The club was therre with signs and decorations and while more would have been better it was fine. Will do it again next year. Many thanks to Lou for getting it set up. See you all the Christmas dinner next weekend; Jim

      I love this event. It is a true “hometown parade.” I was not able to attend this year due to my schedule, not because I did not want to be there. I think like all events – you put them out there. Those who want to will go and others who choose not to will participate in something else instead. The parade is great publicity for the club and unlike the parade we used to participate in Key West, a lot easier to get to! No need for negativity! Think positive and do the things you like to do? We have a lot of events going on and not everyone can do all of them! Thank you to those who did go and participate and so glad you had fun! Did you go to Fritz and Franz again afterwards?
