BAC Holiday Party

Tonight we held our traditional Holiday Party at the Boatworks. The building was decorated inside and out during the week.

Part of tonight's function was to collect donations of food for the Belmar Food Pantry, so all in attendance brought all kinds of non-perishable foods to help feed those in need. The bin decorated for that purpose was filled and then some.

We were able to feed ourselves as well. Dinner was served pot luck. Above is the ever evolving food table, with new dishes arriving all though the evening. A separate dessert table was also crowded with treats. Below some of the crowd are taking advantage of our cafe tables to enjoy a little dinner.

While we enjoyed food and drink, the jam band, known for tonight as the Hanukkah Bobs, provided a variety of rock, blues, and seasonal music.

Another event of the evening was a round of Yankee Swap, with about 30 people participating. Most people ended up keeping their first picked gifts, so the presents were generally of high quality.

Several dozen members and friends came out for the evening and had a great time.
