CSI Goes Cruising for Christmas

Posted: Tue, Jan 30 2024

The Knoxville CSI Chapter took a cruise down the Tennessee River for our Christmas Celebration on the Volunteer Princess. Over 50 CSI members and their guests enjoyed the 2 hour dinner cruise decked out in their Holiday garb. We were honored to have special guests from the East Tennessee Design Center, Duane Grieve & Jan Mosadegh, join us for the festivities.

Our Fun Committee created games to play & prizes to be won. Check out the prize on Geoffery's head.

We collected Toys for Tots again this year, a tradition started by then president Curtis Rosenbaum in 1997. These toys were delivered to the Marine Base the following day, and were greeted with great gratitude. Many, many children were blessed.

Lots of fun, food and fellowship, old friends and new. A Merry Christmas was to be had by all.
