SACL Holiday Party a Success!

The civic league’s December holiday party was a great success with a festive crowd of almost 100 neighbors.  We were joined again this year by folks from the Wards Corner Civic League.

A number of our elected officials came by, including Virginia Delegate Jay Jones, Norfolk Sheriff Joe Baron, Mayor Kenny Alexander, Vice Mayor Martin Thomas, City Council Member Andria McClellan, Norfolk Public School Board Chair, Dr. Noelle Gabriel, and School Board members Lauren Campsen and Adale Martin.  Ted Drake, representing Virginia Delegate Bob Bloxom, also joined us.

The Norfolk Public Schools Jazz Band provided the entertainment.  Thanks to everyone who helped out, brought side dishes and desserts, and helped to eat all the great food!
