A Lovely OWSA Holiday Party - 2023

Published 11:27pm on 7 Dec 2023

The OWSA holiday Party took place on December 7th at the Portland Yacht Club, who kindly donated the space and importantly, opened the bar. The view enjoyed from the dining room had all the boats moored at PYC festively decorated with holiday lights for the season.

About 50 members attended, wearing their festive holiday outfits. A great time was had by all. The changing of the leadership was ceremonially presented and the date of the thirtieth anniversary party was announced. In addition there was a gift exchange and a fun photo booth. Below I've shared some photos of the festivities.

Gail Taylor & Alice Patten(center), along with Carisa Bohus, Carol Baker & Laura Gadley, announced the date for the Thirtieth Anniversary Celebration -- October 5th 2024, so save the date on your calendar!! Also, if you want to work on the party or have ideas contact them at

The Buffet was beautiful with amazing Christmas desserts, as well as hearty soup, fresh salad and bread sticks.
