December 15, 2013 the Coast Guard Station St. Inigoes had their annual
Christmas Party for the children of the station personnel. They had a Christmas Tree with presents underneath,
lots of food and soft drinks brought in by the parents. They played some games and waited for Santa
Claus to arrive. At the appointed time
Santa (Steve Alexander, member of Auxiliary Flotilla 21-11 and Sea Scout Ship
759) came into the station dock on the Station’s 45 foot patrol boat. Also aboard were two Elves (Zach Stauffer
and Patrick Russel, Sea Scouts of Ship 548 in Avenue)
waved and did his ho, ho, ho’s the two Elves helped Santa give out the
presents. The little ones and some of
the big ones had their picture taken with Santa and because he was at his
busiest time of the year he and his Elves had to leave.
Senior Chief Philip
Robinson, Officer in Charge of the station asked the Sea Scouts to come back in
the spring to do some nautical skills training.
