New Years Day

Dillon Beach

New Years 2018 day at dillon Beach

SPECTACULAR is the word that best describes the NCIWC Annual Holiday Party at Dillon Beach !  The weather was breathtaking.  The turnout was amazing !  The food was gourmet.  The Hounds were beyond happy !   It was obviously a Club gathering as so many were wearing the 2017 Specialty Logo apparel. 
Started out with hot coffee and Bailey’s Irish Cream, hot cider, homemade cookies, muffins, and fruit.  Then, a great walk !!!   The lunch table had everything you can imagine on it, including Champagne and orange juice.  Plus, Mr. Hot Dog (Al Lum) bbq’d his famous hot dogs.  Katie Madzier brought home made potato soup that was raved about.  We were disappointed that Terry and Robin couldn’t make it because of Robin’s hospitalization, BUT, we raised our glasses and wished her a very speedy recovery.  Peggy Squires made a toast to celebrate Ken Gabriel’s ?0th Birthday.  Then, another great walk !
We had kite flying, and New Year’s hats and horns which were enjoyed by the three Da Rosa girls.  They are such an adorable threesome and it was wonderful to have them join us.
All in all, it was just a perfect way to start the New Year  !!

The rain held off for our time on the parade route. As always the Irish Wolfhounds are a crowd favorite. A big thank you to Tom and Inga Bourdon for organizing the event. And a big thank you for Ken Gabriel for being our van driver.

Picture will follow as they are received.
