SACI celebrates Mother’s Day

Por Herman Santa

El “Spanish American Club, Inc.” celebró el dia de las Madres el sábado 13 de mayo en los salones del Jensen Beach Women’s Club.

El baile estuvo amenizado por Johnny Saltos “Johnny’s Music.  Johnny Saltos nos puso a bailar desde muy temprano con sus ritmos modernos.  Las luces sicodélicas, humo y su forma de animar al público nos sentimos si estuvieramos en una discoteca.  Como de costumbre hicimos la rueda, el Puente y el calipso.

Se aprovechó la ocasión para celebrar los cumpleaños en el mes de mayo de los socias Isa Bryson, Reneé Arnao y Odette Gayoso.  Al final Johnny dedicó canciones a las madres.  Quiero darle las gracias a todas las personas que colaboraron y nos apoyaron en eta actividad, especialmente al organizador, César Bohórquez, a la Junta Directiva y a los socios del club que contribuyeron.
