The members of the St. Croix Yacht Club like to have a good time together both at the club house and on the water. They can be found networking at our Wednesday Night Buffet or unwinding on the beach during our Friday Night Happy Hour. Members have been sighted in costumes such as Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf and windsurfing into the beach as Santa Claus.
SANTA ARRIVES AT THE YACHT CLUB
Over the years, Santa’s arrival at the St. Croix Yacht club has been through different modes of transportation. We have seen Santa land on Teague Bay in a Seaplane, have watched him come motoring into our club on a Big Motorcycle and have witnessed Santa being dropped on our front lawn by a Helicopter. Santa is a jolly old soul and one year, Santa arrived a bit merrier than most. I guess he was into the Christmas Spirits early that day. BUT, the most memorable Arrival of Santa was our water skiing Santa. That nimble Santa managed to make a perfect landing on the beach from his water skis. No matter how Santa arrives at the St. Croix Yacht Club, he is welcomed by the young and old.
This year’s arrival was a Traditional one – by Boat. With horns blaring, Santa arrived without a hitch and delivered the presents to all the good girls and boys.
Prior to Santa’s arrival, the kids were busy playing on the beach or working on their Glitter Art in the Workshop. Maureen Sallach and Annie Barry volunteered to help the kids with their Glitter creations. Debby Babb read Christmas stories and sang Jingle Bells and other holiday songs by the Christmas tree.
Posh Catering provided Fruit Punch, Cookies and Fruit for snacks.
To SANTA and SANTA’S Boat Crew – Great Job!
Big Thanks to the parents that brought those Delicious Christmas Cookies – EVERY cookie got eaten.
Till next year….. And we can all start wondering, How will Santa Arrive next year???????????????
Several times a month special Friday night and Saturday night entertainments take place …dancing of all sorts, bingo, trivial pursuit, full moon sails, family game nights, the list goes on. But wait! All this self indulgence is definitely balanced by the big hearts of our members, who also raise money at benefits in honor of Junior and Community Sailing.
There is always something cooking at the Yacht Club, so check the calendar frequently and come on out and join the fun.
