The 50-50 raffle held before the movie brought in $46. Since the
winner declined his $23 prize, the Association benefited from all
the money collected.

movie on the beach. Venetian night was changed to Summer of High
Water. Recommended theme was anything to do with water, although any
decoration would be accepted. Only one boat entered the contest, but
it was beautifully and thoughtfully done.

Dead (Dia de los Muertos) or any Mexican fiesta theme, preferably
from the movie Coco. Two boats entered the competition.
