Awards Dinner/Holiday Party

(formerly Banquets)

GLPA normally has a holiday celebration each year and in June our annual awards celebration. Our holiday celebration will be held on the Confabulation night which is usually the second Monday of December. We will also be doing our very popular Yankee swap on that evening. The Annual Awards celebration will be in June at the club. These celebrations are for all GLPA members and their families. They are nights/days of good food, camaraderie, good-natured banter, and as always, a few laughs.

Notification of signups for these events will be forthcoming prior to each event.

The 2023 Holiday Party, Confabulation and Yankee Swap was again held at the club on Monday, December 18, 2023. It appears that most everyone has been enjoying having the holiday party at the club instead of going out to a restaurant. Lots of appetizers and desserts were served and the Yankee Swap was as much fun as it always is. Again, thanks to Carolyn Livingston for being our wandering photographer - look at her images here. Great job Carolyn!!

The 2023 End of Year and Awards Party was held on June 10 at the club. Using the club facilities to host these parties seems to be working quite well. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone has a good time. Here are images from the party taken by our roving photographer, Carolyn Livingston. Thanks so much Carolyn for these great photos!

The 2022 Holiday Party, Confabulation and Yankee Swap took place at the club on Monday, December 12, 2022. It was a very fun evening in a relaxed atmosphere. The Yankee Swap was a big hit. Thanks to Carolyn Livingston for the photos taken that evening. Take a look at them here.

The 2021 Holiday Banquet took place on December 6 at Spinelli's and everyone had a great time. Alix Smullin did a wonderful job of organizing the door prizes and the Yankee Swap. Carolyn Livingston was our roving photographer. See her images here.

Some images from the 2022 Awards BBQ.

Register for Annual End of Year Awards & BBQ

As was requested by the membership, we will again have the awards ceremony at the club. The menu last year was a great meal of BBQ from Tennessee BBQ-Peabody. This year will be a repeat of that meal. Everyone went home full and there was plenty left over for take home boxes. The menu is a good old-fashioned BBQ with lots of selections-chicken, Memphis ribs, pulled pork, lots of sides including cornbread, corn of the cob and desert along with the usual libations. If you want a vegetarian meal you need to notify Chris. The club will still be subsidizing part of the cost however as in all things the cost has gone up from the caterer so your cost to attend has gone up by $6. This year for a measly $26 bucks a head, you get to eat, drink and be merry and if lucky, pick up an award or two. What a deal. After we eat, we will view the winning digital images and pass out the awards along with the prints and print awards.

The website sign up for the BBQ has changed-you can now sign up in two different places and you can pay with PayPal directly when you register. Thanks to Andrew Katsampes for making PayPal available. We are charging $26 per person whether you pay with PayPal or by cash or check. The easiest way to sign up is to just click the red text at the top of this information. The second way is to go to the left side column and click on the sign-up link then in the drop-down menu, pick the BBQ. If signing up for two people you need to do them separately if paying with PayPal. If paying by check you can put two names in. Please sign up on one of the direct registration links on this page and if not using PP, pay Chris at the club or mail your check to her at 62 Valiant Way- Salem, MA 01970. Payment and registration must be received by June 4 so that the correct amounts of food can be ordered. Once you sign up, you are in the count and cannot be canceled after June 4th. If you find you cannot come, we cannot refund your money and if you have not paid yet, you will be expected to pay for your reservation.

Please join us for the last club function of the year and pick up your award. You worked hard to win one, have it presented to you in front of the membership instead of by the mailman. Please attend.
