Strathmere Improvement Association - Christmas Party photos

Hopefully you made it to the Christmas Party - it was another great one! Attendance was down slightly because of some conflicts and illness but the food was wonderful and a great time was had by all!

Here are the pictures:
Great food and lots of it!

Greg bartends...

Eddie ladles out his super soup!

Here your intrepid photographer must apologize for not capturing a picture of our amazing chef, Ed Tettemer.

Dinner pictures...

Then Santa arrives!

Coming prepared with a list for Santa!

Santa seems to be making a deal with the bartender!

Many thanks to Santa and his Elves!

Thanks also to the Fire Company and the rest of the volunteers who made it such a tasty and fun night!

And thanks to all for your continued support of the Strathmere Improvement Association!

An Old-fashioned Christmas Display:

We have had to replace the wonderful “Sindia Exhibit” that we’ve enjoyed all year. The Ocean City Historic Society did finally need the artifacts for an exhibition of their own. Our newest display is entitled: An Old-fashioned Christmas and features vintage lights, Christmas tree balls, ornaments, toys, etc. There’s probably something in the case that will remind you of holidays past. Do you remember “bubble lights?”
Strathmere Favorites:
I would like to recommend: The Summer Kitchen by Lisa Wingate. The summer kitchen was just part of the old fading pink house that SandraKaye inherited from her uncle. She thought she’d be better off just selling the place or would she? Her life becomes interestingly woven with characters from that old neighborhood. You’ll enjoy this novel about hope, second chances and new beginnings.

Happy Holidays!
