Spanish American Club’s annual Christmas dinner dance

By Herman Santa

On Dec. 28, members and supporters of the Spanish American Club gathered to celebrate the club’s last event of the year at the Polish American Social Club in Port St. Lucie.  The attendees enjoyed a delicious sit-down dinner of pork, cod white fish, chicken, salad, baked potato, vegetable medley, and dessert. Entertainment was provided by D.J. Johnny’s Music.

Rubén Alemán, master of ceremonies and club president, alternating with Ray Guadalupe, Public Relations Director welcomed everyone to the party and gave an update of the club and thanked everyone for continued support.  Ray Guadalupe, conducted the raffles (door prizes, basket of cheers and 50/50) and the December birthday celebration. Among the birthday members present were: Gustavo Santa, Nestor Pereira, Elizabeth Mejia, Virginia Feliciano, Mary Figliola and Javier Andrade.

Door prize winners: Ray Matias, Mercy Roman, Sonia Echevarria, Isa Bryson, Tom Burger, Josie Guadalupe, Ed Parra, Maite Peterson and Lucy Santa. Basket of Cheers winners: Elizabeth Mejía and Doris Ellie and 50/50 winners: Fideligno Casallas and Elizabeth Mejia.

The event ended with the awards ceremony. Alemán recognized some members and directors for their service, contribution and dedication to the club with Gift cards. Among them were Ray Guadalupe, Maritza Rivera, Josie Guadalupe, Nereida Pellot, Angel Pellot, Rosie Soto, Nancy Rozón, Rubén Alemán, Iván Guanill and Carlos Mejia.  Charlie and María Quiles were not present.

A big “thank you” went out to the board, who worked hard to make the last annual event of the year a big success. Many thanks to the members who helped with the decorations and set-ups. Finally, thanks to the members that donated the door prizes and bought tickets for the raffles.

This non-profit organization’s mission is to preserve the Hispanic heritage on the Treasure Coast. The members meet once a month to socialize, dine and dance. Some members and their guests play golf on Wednesdays at The Saints after 12 P.M. and bowl on Mondays after 5:30 at the St. Lucie Lanes.
