Title:Port Royal Christmas Party, Dec. 8, 2017
Port Royal Christmas Party, Dec. 8, 2017 (full size gallery)
The Port Royal Christmas party was less attended in 2017 than in previous years. There were probably 75 people there. Snow was coming down as the party began and predictions for Saturday were anywhere from 1-3 inches. However, the outside tree which was planted many years ago showed the splendor of Christmas and the numbers that were in attendance had more time with Santa.
There were three groups collaborating for this event – Town of Port Royal, Parks and Rec, St. Peter’s Episcopal. St. Peter’s took care of the pizza and Town of Port Royal the sweets.
St. Peter’s also helped with the serving and support. Catherine helped to organize the group and provided fellowship. Johnny Davis and Jim Heimbach served pizza. Nancy and Elizabeth were in the kitchen. Andrea provided the desserts. Families from St. Peter’s who enjoyed the evening included the Davis’ and Dukes.
The children enjoyed all the food, especially the pizza. They sang "Rudolph" before going outside and then singing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and counting down until the tree was lit. The tree sparkled in the snow.
Santa arrived by fire truck, greeted the children and held audience.
Donnell Howard the master of ceremonies as usually greeted the children and asked if at the end if they enjoyed the party. Everyone did!
