Update - Christmas Party
The annual gala was held at the Lakeview Restaurant on Friday, Dec. 5th. The celebration hit capacity for the first time as 160 attended the party! Entertainment for the evening was provided in grand style by Dashboard Blue from Asheville which was a return engagement after a rousing success with the attendees at the 2013 party.
The guests were treated to a three course dinner with a selection of three different entrees offered by Chef Mike and his team, topped off by a great desert of a molten lava chocolate cake topped with ice cream. Randy Snyder, HOA President and Patti Stewart, Newcomer President kicked off the evening with an egg nog toast worth repeating for the purpose of this article as Randy offered, "Christmas with Friends, 160 of them, an evening with goodwill, cheer, best wishes, hope all in a blend! Heart to Heart, friend to Friend! Cheers to all!"
A Christmas carol sing along was held at nine o clock with the band playing the traditional carol offering and the attendees singing along. We also had a "broom dance" with all couples exchanging partners at 10 different intervals with two singles ending up with a broom partner each time. Finally, the last persons with the broom partner got to keep the decorated broom at the end!
Photos of attendees were taken throughout the evening and were printed and available before the end of the evening. In addition, many other photos from the evening are posted on this website. Click the Photos link above to view these photos.
The restaurant was adorned with decorations done by Patti Schroeder and a team of helping hands that did an amazing job of creating a festive atmosphere second to none! The glitz throughout the facility was amazing, topped of by about 180 poinsettias! The poinsettias, a bag with candy selections and the photos were given to the attendees as they left at 10PM after nearly three hours of great food, great music and celebrating “Christmas with Friends”!
