Santa made a brief stop at Snell Isle last night. So many families came by in anticipation of getting a few minutes with the jolly man in red. And there were the photo opps. So many of them. We had grandparents snapping pictures on their phones, parents bringing reluctant children forward, many kids who bravely sat on Santa's lap and those who felt more comfortable approaching the jolly fellow from behind.
Many enjoyed cookies, egg nog and hot chocolate while they waited to see the seasonal star. We saw some decorated golf carts and many festive outfits.
Thanks to the SIPOA Board for coordinating this event, and for those of you who came out to participate. The Board wishes everyone a wonderful Holiday, wherever you are and whenever you are celebrating.

Our last Snell Isle Food Truck Friday of the year will be this week, Nov 4th. Bring your friends, join your neighbors for this casual event along Snell Isle Boulevard in front of the Vinoy. Lawn chairs and coolers optional, but many will gather to enjoy their meal in the greenspace. The truck will be ready to serve at 5:30PM until about 8:00, or it sells out. They take cash or credit card and serve non-alcoholic beverages.
Fishin Chicken is our food truck and they have provided a menu ahead of time to check out. We hope you'll join us for this popular event. All are welcome!
