Over a hundred guests attended the annual Holiday Party of the Connecticut Energy Marketers Association. The event this year was held at the swanky Delamar Hotel in West Hartford. Many out-of-town guests who stayed at the hotel overnight were very impressed by the accommodations. Mike Devino, Mercury Fuel, Waterbury, Conn., who usually supplies a jazz trio for entertainment, this year was at the keyboard himself as he played a medley of popular songs and holiday tunes during the evening, along with a guitarist and drummer. Attendees were also very generous again this year as they contributed a huge pile of toys for the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots drive.
Dinner sponsors were: Buckeye Energy Services, Inland Fuel Terminals, Sack Energy, Savage Associates, Wehof Forms. Reception sponsors: Angus Energy, Federated Insurance, Fuel Management Services, Global Companies LLC, Gulf Oil LP. Entertainment sponsors: Automated Wireless Environments, Buckeye Energy Services, Cetane Associates. Toys for Tots sponsors: Advanced Fuel Solutions, Avatas Payment Solutions.—David Chu
