As always, we celebrate all of those who participated to make our waterfront sparkle with holiday cheer! You can find pictures from around the marina here. Picking a winner was a tough decision. However, the following boats were ultimately selected:
Winner: Seeking Wild

3) Holiday Party to Collect Donations for Dockworkers: Slip holders will celebrate the holidays and community once more by gathering this Tuesday Dec 13, from 6-9PM on La Joyeuse for a special tradition: a potluck style party to collect donations for a holiday bonus for our hardworking marina staff.
