Our Holiday Luncheon this year will be held at Taino-by-the-Sea Restaurant at Taino Beach Resort, Jolly Roger Drive, at 11:30 Social Hour, 12:30 Lunch.
“Christmas Together, After the Storm”
is the theme of our luncheon on Wednesday December 7th, which we will be holding, for the first time, in conjunction with the Canadian Women’s Club. This will allow us to maximize our resources and free up the time and money of our respective
members as we make repairs to our own properties and help in the restoration of Grand Bahama as a whole after Hurricane Matthew.
Nathalie Koll and her chef at Taino by the Sea have put together a tempting holiday menu and we will be entertained by the Children’s Choir of the Sunland Baptist Academy.
The program will include the traditional features of both clubs: the CWC Lucky Draw and the AWC Raffle and Jewellery Exchange.
The Raffle and Lucky Draw are being combined with all proceeds to go to the joint CWCGB GBAWC Hurricane Relief Project. The money will go to the Rotary Clubs, and will be spent on food, supplies or whatever is mostly urgently needed. Please bring nice items for the raffle, a bottle of wine, candles, cocktail napkins, Christmas ornaments, etc. The more we have the more money we will raise. Tickets are 3 for $1 and 7 for $2, so remember to bring $1 bills.
We will also be supporting the annual Santa’s Little Helpers gifts for children, especially important this year. Please bring a small gift for a child – less than $10 – wrapped and labelled with the age and gender of a child for whom the gift is appropriate. Santa’s Little Helpers is organized by Vickie Martell and this year the Rotary has come onside to help distribute the gifts.
The Jewellery Exchange will be a fun way to exchange a piece of jewellery that you don’t wear anymore for something else. If you want to take part, please bring your bling unwrapped, you will be given a number. After lunch the numbers will be drawn at random. When yours is called you can choose from what is on the table.
As is traditional, we will start off with a complimentary glass of bubbly (or club soda) during our social hour.
