More than 200 members and guests celebrated New Year's Eve in the NPC's Ballroom to the music of Doc Scantlin and His Imperial Palms Orchestra. It was a return appearance for this well-known big band group, which last performed at the NPC's Centennial gala on April 5, 2008. The New Year's Eve celebration featured abundant appetizers, an open bar, a midnight toast, and festive party favors.
