Commodore's Ball

Saturday, November 10
Commodore Dale & Sue Giali

It was a beautiful day as folks arrived at the Queen Mary early to enjoy time aboard this magnificent vessel.
What an appropriate location at which to hold our 2012 Commodore's Ball.

A number of members chose to stay the night aboard the Queen.
