By Herman Santa

More than 110 attended the Christmas dinner dance on Saturday, December 29 at the Disabled American Veterans Club in Port St. Lucie.  The meal consisted of salad with dressing on the side, bread, pulled pork (Lechón asado), chicken enchilada casserole, yellow rice and a vegetable medley. Assortments of desserts among them “Flan” was set out for the guests to choose from. There was coffee and a birthday cake to celebrate the members December birthdays.

After the dinner, the D.J. played a “Happy Birthday” song for members and their guests who were celebrating their birthdays during the month of December. Among them were: Willie González, Nilda Betancourt, Zipy Cartagena, Charlie López, Mary Figliola, Jimmy Rivera, Kathy Rivera, Gustavo Santa, Virginia Feliciano, Ernesto Suárez and Kino Vélez.  There were two raffle winners and four door prizes that were given out.  The winners were: Mary Figliola ($100), Al Feliciano (Door prize), Nereida Pellot ($36), Diana Manzanares (Door Prize), Deway Byerly (Certificate) and Sonia Hernandez (Certificate).  Hat dance winner was José Ramírez.

The Highlight of the night was Joe Renta from Showtime Entertainment who did a terrific job entertaining us playing the “Congas” and “Timbales”.   His cousin Raul Del Rosario (Deejay) and his girlfriend Priscilla “Coro” were marvelous.  The food was delicious, the music was great and the decoration committee did a good job.  To all the members and guests who made donations for the door prizes, we appreciate your generosity.
