GLPA normally has a holiday celebration each year and in June our annual awards celebration. For 2022 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.
Thanks to Alix Smullin our Banquet Chair for all her past time and work on these two fun and important celebrations.
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.

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 be subsidizing part of the cost so you will get all this again this year for a measly $20 bucks a head. 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
If already signed up and confirmed make sure to mail your check to Barbara at 62 Valiant Way- Salem, MA 01970 to guarantee your seat.
You can also pay online with PayPal through the link Donations. The link is located on the home page of website- top right-side column- orange link-Donate. You would need to put the amount in and then click PayPal box under it to pay- HOWEVER you would need to add $1 to cover PayPal fees so it would be $21 per person with PayPal.
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.
