The Annual Useppa Employee Christmas Party was held in the Tarpon Bar on Christmas Eve.  Laughter, a few tears, gratitude, memories and celebration...good ways to end the year.

The Christmas Fund, donated by Useppa Island Club members, was distributed based on years of service and particular jobs with more given to "behind the scenes folk" not visible for regular tipping.  Lucky numbers determined recipients of Santa gifts in stockings hung on the tree.  Gift cards and cash for fortunate winners. Applause and backslapping followed JR through the crowd as he received his award as Employee of the 4th Quarter.  Then there was a standing ovation for Roxanne when Tim Fitzsimmons announced her name as Employee of the Year. Thanks to Lou Ann and her crew.  Thanks to Useppa Island Club.  Thanks to Club Members.  Thank you all for making it a great end to the year.

And thank you to all of the employees of Useppa who make the magic of this island happen.
