Bill and I went to a gala event for New Year's Eve. A local jazz saxophonist was the entertainment with a big band, backup singers and dancers. Non-stop, high energy dance music for the night. There was also a piano bar setup in another room for a little bit quieter venue which was also enjoyable.
There were other activities going on throughout the night. It was a fundraiser for one of the Rotary Clubs in Vancouver and part of the proceeds went to the Children's Center of which Bill is on the board. They had a raffle for trips, tarot card readers, a photo booth as well as other things. The photo booth was fun--to be able to get your pictures taken by a professional photographer, get copies of the pictures on the spot and be able to post them to Facebook immediately. It was a really cool idea.
2011 has been a year of joys, milestones and challenges for the whole family. Here is hoping that 2012 can be a great year.
