It was a grooving, moving and jiving party last Thursday as staff and guests of the Ministry of National Security Security partied for the season.
The already narrow road to Curphey Place was littered with cars as guests came out to party. When The Gleaner team arrived at 9:00 p.m., the crowd was quite good and only got bigger the closer it got to midnight. Food stations on both sides of the venue and a well-stocked bar (two musts for a successful party) were there for the guests' enjoyment. But the real test of any party is the music, and this one passed with flying colours.

As usual, the soca-loving Jamaicans really started to move once the DJ cranked out hits like The Plumber. The DJ then struck gold with disco tunes like I Will Survive and Young Hearts Run Free, inviting some timid movers out to the dance area. By then he couldn't place a disc wrong,throwing in hits such as Reggae Night. By the time he reached Tempted To Touch, Push Come To Shove and Too Experienced, people were officially having a good time. The bubblers seemed to invade the dance floor once he went into 'big tunes' like Browning and Dun Wife.
Even close to the a.m. hours of Friday, persons were still pouring in. Those spotted among the revellers were Arthur Williams, Robert Royer, Deborah Hickling, Archibald Gordon, Stacy-Ann Smith, Kirk Wright, Howard Walker, Michelle Wilson-Reynolds and Rohan Powell.
