PBCA CHRISTMAS PARTY

Ann Fell

Dec. 2 - This year's Christmas Party was well attended  by approximately 50 at the Best Western Pensacola Beach.  The food was again catered by Anne Black, Pic-N-Sav with fried turkeys and all the trimmings including a new addition Italian Cream Cheese cake.

 

The Dirty Santa revealed the true personality of some of our members--Mitzi Maddox.  Watch your gift when Mitzi is around.  You never know what she will steal and circulate around the room.  There is a plot going around to obscure Tom Schmitz vision from getting every wood creation made by Jeff Olive. 

 

The Christmas carol game presented by Keith Sanders made you feel either smart or dumb depending how many you got right. 

 

A special thanks to all those who helped setup and cleanup.  You sure make the job of putting on this fun event a lot easier.

LILLIAN CHRISTMAS PARADE

Dec. 9 – PBCA drove in the annual Christmas Parade just over the Florida-Alabama line in Lillian, Alabama. Perfect weather and a perfect parade! Eleven cars made up the British car segment of the parade. Tom Schmitz provided the large bags of candy to throw along the route.
