An Italian-themed party called ‘Decorations to Donations’ was organized by the members of the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club at Great Abaco Beach Resort’s Marquee on Feb. 3.

One hundred and four people were in attendance.

Bow Tie Pasta Carbonara, Penne Pasta with Meat Sauce and Pasta Alfredo along with mixed salad and a choice of dressings, garlic and French bread and assorted desserts were served during the buffet dinner.

A request was made for attendees to bring non-perishable items such as pasta, sauce, canned tomatoes, etc. to be used as their table centerpiece or as their donation to the Bahamas Red Cross.

The initiative led to non-perishable Italian food items being collected for the Bahamas Red Cross.

Jack Power and his wife Susan headed up the donation, and stopped by Angel’s Academy on Feb.4 to make the donation to Barbara Johnson, coordinator and volunteer for the Bahamas Red Cross’ Abaco Chapter.

Johnson expressed gratitude on behalf of the Bahamas Red Cross, and the needy families on the island that the food items would be distributed among.

Mrs. Power explained that from the beginning of November until the end of April, boaters who are also second homeowners travel to Abaco. The Powers have been visiting Abaco for 40 years, and the Yacht Club has been around since 1980.

Mr. Power said they have been engaged in charitable efforts for some time having constructed the dinghy dock next to the Union Jack Dock for boaters to have access to the town area for shopping.

The Yacht Club has also made donations to Friends of the Environment and BASRA, and Mr. Power said they will make donations on a continual basis.
