The Halloween costumes at Monterey consisted of very scary and even scarier outfits, including a flapper & Irish Leprechaun, a gorilla, a gangster and criminal, a copa cabana showgirl, some hippies, plus a variety of spooky devils and goblins. Prizes for best costumes were awarded. First place went to Bill McIntyre dressed as a curvy playboy bunny, Rob Beanie the gorilla was second, and third place went to Marilyn Paul as a baby with a pacifier. Consolation prizes also went to Isabel Pendelton as Gilligan Islands Mary Ann and her daughter as a Unicorn.
The Sophisticats, the best band to ever play at Monterey, had everyone up on the dance floor with a wide variety of musical selections. The crowd attending this party was a pleasing mixture of newcomers and longtime Monterey residents. The band was enthused with the Monterey crowd and loved playing for such a fun group. We had a great turn out and many volunteers helped with the Halloween decorations at the Yacht Club. Thanks to Nancy OBrien and Kim Ryan for organizing a wonderful social activity to start off the coming season with the promise of a delightful and lively turnout for our future social activities.
