nother Christmas Eve has come and gone at the KAMR headquarters and observers report that attendance this year was at record levels.
New this year was Mike Poquette and his whole family along with their significant others. The family with the largest number attending were the VanLanens with 13, while the family with the least attending was Sod Poquette with only his daughter Stephonia and her family at 3. Total attendees this year totaled 59, up from the previous years estimate of 50. The record of 67 still remains and has never had a serious challenge in recent years.
Probably the most notable not to attend this years get together were members from the Cornelius or Wenzel families. The Cornenzels, a family who's shadows were cast at the Christmas Eve party since it's inception by at least one member failed to produce even one person to hob nob with other offspring of the Poquette Family.
As usual the group was subdued at first but later became loud and boisterous as the night wore on and the alcohol flowed freely in the veins of those consuming adult beverages.
