The holiday season has arrived and it's time to celebrate - Orange County style - with fellow CMC alumni and parents at the annual Newport Beach Holiday Boat Parade! The CMCAA Orange County Chapter will gather for the 111th boat parade at the home of John Faranda '79, star of #FridayswithFaranda. Join members of the CMC community at 5:30 p.m. for delicious appetizers and desserts while waiting for the parade to arrive at 6:30 p.m.

In the spirit of the season, please bring an item to share: last names beginning with A-J: desserts; last names beginning K-Z: hors d'oeuvres or other snacks. Hot cocoa, coffee, and other refreshments will be provided. Remember to dress warmly and comfortably!

The CMCAA Orange County Chapter will also be collecting gift cards to donate to the Orangewood Children's Foundation. Specifically, they are looking for small denominations ($10-25) to Target, Walmart, Ralph's, Albertsons, and Ross. If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause, please bring a gift card with the amount indicated on the card.
