The Marco Island Yacht Club is donned with mistletoe and holly, Christmas lights twinkle bright, and laughter and music are heard night after night. The Yacht Club’s Christmas Gala held on Friday, December 9, was not to be missed as all showed up to give Santa a big kiss. Santa arrived to spread Christmas cheer to all Yacht Club members both far and near. Santa’s elves danced around and helped Santa to be found. Then, after Christmas carols were sung the dinner bell was rung. A holiday menu of beef, fish, chicken, and special Christmas cookies and cakes were served. Dancing around the Christmas tree continued throughout the night until Santa got on his sleigh and bid all a farewell and goodnight.
