There was a great buffet lunch.

Just what would an installation be without a pig in attendance?  I mean..really....what would it be??

...and of course, the best thing...For the past two years, I have been able to make fun of the cake, but this year....... I can't find a way to do that.  It looked and tasted great!

Worshipful Bacaoco and all of us in the Officer's Line thank all our friends for attending. 
You made this a wonderful, fun and exciting event.
