MWTC Holiday Party 2014

Santa has come and gone once again but he did make an important stop at the MWTC dining facility before he delivered all his toy’s Christmas Eve. MCMWTC held their annual Holiday Party on December 19th, plenty of community and fellowship was on hand as Marines, Sailors, civilians, and family members shared a meal together. The event started with a float parade; all the different sections on the installation had the opportunity to decorate a vehicle with the goal of transforming it into a holiday float! Everyone gathered outside the dining facility as the float parade went by throwing out candy to the children and showing off their float to the judges. There was some great competition between the sections but at the end of the day the MCCS float took home first place! Inside the Chow Hall, as a wonderful meal was being enjoyed, children could participate in crafts, watch Christmas movies, and at the end of the day…they got to see Santa! There were also prizes awarded to the children who submitted Holiday art work and for the adults, an ugly sweater contest was held with prizes given out to the winners.

On behalf of MCCS and the Marines and Sailors of MCMWTC I would like to say thank you to the individuals and organizations that supported this event with special mention for Eastern Sierra Community Bank, American Friends of our Armed Forces, and The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes who donated enough brand new children’s books so that each child left Santa’s lap with one.
