During the December 13, 2009 regular stamp meetup of Cebu Stamp Club, Incorporated (CSCI), members decided to hold the club's Christmas party on December 20, 2009.
At 2:00 pm yesterday, Cebu Stamp Club stampers came to the function room of Fisherman's Net Restaurant in Gorordo Avenue, Cebu City to spend time with each other to celebrate Christmas.
Philatelic giveaways were in store for everyone along with parlor games, good food, karaoke singing, soda drinks and some beverages, and exchanging of gifts.
Dinah Potolin who came with her husband led the invocation while I did the opening remarks.
British member David Taylor and wife Marichu, Ricardo Teves, Richard Beethoven "Bob" Uy, Sharee Ann Trapa, Edison Go, Richard Guimbarda, Eyan Yu with son Polky, Gina Turner, Janice Benolerao and Aileen Liwat were all there for the occassion. German member Edmund Gruenbaum came a little later with a friend.
All of us had fun! Sharee did a good job in initiating some games for everyone. I never thought Sharee, Edison, Bob, Janice and Richard Guimbarda could all sing well.
Earlier, the 2010 officers and members of the Board of Trustees were announced. They are as follows:
Richard Allan Uy - President
Ricardo Teves - Vice President
Sharee Ann Trapa - Secretary

By 5:30 pm, we said our goodbyes but not after planning to have a summer beach party in April or May 2010.
My personal thanks to Paul Kevin "Polky" Yu for providing me the photos of the party.
