FELIZ NATAL E BOAS FESTAS!
Merry Christmas to our wonderful YAPS members! We definitely ended this year on a high note. The merriment and goodwill of Christmas was tangible at our charity dinner. Café Duarte served up a mouth-watering three course menu and their ambiance, as always, was true to the Portuguese spirit. Once everyone arrived – Portuguese time is real! – we seated ourselves around generous mountains of food, glinting tinsel and the explosion of Christmas crackers. In the spirit of Christmas we even gave Nicole the night off and had our own Carlos DJ!
‘Tis the season and giving is what you do best. We were able to fill our cars to the brim with groceries and Christmas gifts which you donated. We delivered these to the Lovely Bears Crèche and Bienvenu Shelter on Saturday morning. The Crèche held their pre-school graduation which we were privileged enough to attend. Your gifts and donations lit up the faces of the kids, giving desperately needed love and hope to children who have had to grow up far too soon.
We wish you and your families a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
