Christmas Dinner Dance Friday 8th Dec.
Guests got the red carpet treatment at the annual 53rd Christmas Dinner Dance hosted
at CETI Locale in the Old Town.  The venue was beautifully decorated in true Christmas
spirit and an extremely tasty buffet was served together with the traditional Christmas
Cake, lovingly baked as usual by Pamela Caulfield. The event was attended by family
and friends of members of the 53rd.  Traditions upheld with a lot of dancing and
merriment enjoyed by everyone.  Special thanks go out to the parent committee
members Estelle, Isaias and our Young Leaders, who helped to make this event a
great success.  Thank you too to everyone who attended to support the Group and
helped make the event memorable. More picures can be found on the Parents Page.
The Leaders of the 53rd would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a
prosperous New Year.
