January 2017

(Fort Lauderdale is called the “Venice of America” because of its 165 miles of local waterways.)

My friends,

A Celebration of Friends has extended the holiday season until 26 - 29 January with the JANUARY JAMBOREE. Life is good here in beautiful Fort Lauderdale; come and share it with us.

For the next few days ROOMS WILL BE AVAILABLE!!. Then, all rooms not booked will go back into the general population and rates will rise back to normal.

HOTEL BOOKING PROCEDURES:

All HOTEL reservations are on a first come/first serve basis.

  1. Go to our homepage, www.celebrationoffriends.org and register.
  2. Once you've registered, we will contact you within 48 hours with instructions on how to make your room reservations.

We’re raising funds for:

  1. SENIOR PROGRAMMING at THE PRIDE CENTER AT EQUALITY PARK &
  2. TUESDAY’S ANGELS INC

NOW we’re lining up SPONSORS & SUPPORTERS for the Jamboree. We are limited on the number of vendors tables at the Ramada. If you have a product to promote or a service to provide, please let us know.

Many men have already signed up for our 2017 Mr. ACOF Contest. This year we have the entire city involved. Here are the scheduled contests to win the mantle of Mr. ACOF 2017:

Announcement: There will be a ACOF GENERAL MEETING Sunday morning 29 January at the Host Hotel. All are welcome to attend.

The Contestant with the most points will get FREE REGISTRATION AT THE NEXT CELEBRATION!

  • The most Terrific Toga Party
  • A ’Beautiful Bathing Suit’ Contest
  • A Village People night (dress-up as your favorite Village Person)
  • And people are already signing up for our annual “Speedo” Contest.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

The ACOF Board has recently received a scholarship to assist those on limited income with their registration fees. A CELEBRATION OF FRIENDS Scholarships are “need-based.” While we will attempt to assist all who otherwise would be unable to attend our Jamboree, we can only help a few. We will make every effort to assist as many men as possible.

INSTRUCTIONS:

If being unable to pay the registration fee is the only reason you (or someone you know) are unable to attend the January Jamboree, feel free to send an email explaining why you should be among the few recipients to receive this scholarship.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Recipient must be signed up to receive our monthly newsletter.
  • Recipient should be staying at the Host hotel a minimum of 3 - 4 days.
  • Recipient has a low income and is unable to attend the Jamboree only because he can’t afford to pay registration fees.
  • Recipient must display a willingness to volunteer some time daily assisting the ACOF Board during the Jamboree.
  • Recipient will abide by all Rules of Conduct the same as any other Celebration guest.

ALL INQUIRIES IN THIS MATTER WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL. BOARD DECISIONS WILL BE FINAL!

Do any of you remember Chiron Rising Magazines? Do you have any issues laying around? This year we'll have an area for you to display/buy/sell/trade your CR magazines. So go into your attic, check under your matresses and bring all of your old copies to the January Jamboree.
