SYC Pajama Christmas Party

And who says wearing PJ's to a party can't be fun? Close to 80 members and guests donned their finest holiday sleepwear and gathered to celebrate the season at the "PJ" themed SYC Christmas party on December 2nd at the home of Jeff and Lynette.

A traditional Mexican Christmas dinner was provided starting with home-made salsa, guacamole and a Mexican jicama snack followed by tamales, Spanish rice, frijoles and salad. Dessert consisting of flan and Mexican wedding cookies rounded out the evening. A special shout out to Carmen and Tim for recipes and help with all of the fresh sides and desserts.

If you missed the party or can't get enough of the delicious tamales from the newly opened "New Mexico Tamale Company" in Ferndale, check out their website: Owners Dora and Tammy would love to help you out and have a large variety of tamales as well as sides.

Two special donations, made possible by fundraisers throughout 2017, were presented by Commodore Brian to BC Marine Parks Forever and The SeaDoc Society. Each entity received a $1,000 donation and SYC is most honored to support these groups and the work they do to protect both our ocean sea life and environment!

Traditional Mexican Christmas Fare

SYC members once again supported the local community with a large donation made to the Blaine Food Bank. The members generously gave 220 pounds of non-perishable food and diapers PLUS $340 cash.

Thank you to the following people who made this great event possible: Laura, Carmen, Tim, Colleen, Susan, Lexie, Michele, Steve, Jeff and Lynette.

The Board would like to wish each of you and your family a very Merry Christmas filled with much love and joy!
