Celebran primer fiestón del año los socios de club

Por Herman Santa

La Asociación “Spanish American Club, Inc.” (SACI) botó la puerta por la ventana.  Los socios del club en invitados, festejaron de lo lindo el sábado 7 de enero en el primer baile del año de la Organización.

El encuentro sirvió de escenario para unir a los socios, quienes compartieron la alegría de las “Octavitas” y celebraron juntos el fruto de un trabajo aduo y un equipo a lo largo del año.

La actividad se llevó a cabo en el “Disabled American Club” (DAV) en Port St. Lucie.  El salón se vistió de celebración para recibir a los socios dispuestos a bailar, disfrutar de una deliciosa cena y elegir a nuna nueva directiva para el año 2006.

La fiesta comenzó con la Asamblea General Anual y siguió con la cena.  A las 8 de la noche, Raul Del Rosario (Show time DJ’s) empezó a tocar música moderna de salsa, cumbia, merengue y animó a todos con su repertorio de música desde “Line Dance” como “Macarena”, “Electric Slide”, “Chacha Slide” hasta “Karaoke”.  En un receso se hizo la rifa del “Fifity Fifty” y luego la voz romantica del cantante ecuatoriano Xavier Alejando, tornó la noche en una bohemia de recuerdos.
