Fall Banquet – November 11, 2023

The Fall Banquet was another great one.  We had another great meal – everyone loves the chicken!  We sold merchandise and sold out of raffle tickets.  The silent auction was a hit and Larry pulled the last item – Lyn Parker’s quilt out and opened the auction floor for more bidding before it sold.

Elections resulted in Larry being your President for 3 more years.  Jan Huck is completing the last year of the VP term.  John Gustina is Treasurer for another year.  Dave Miller and Wayne & Mary Groweg will be filling Board Member positions for a year.

Larry talked about the Spring Picnic being in Amish Country this year, for 2 days, April 12 & 13.  We had special guests in attendance; Steve Naseman, Kathy Stahl and Toote Alexander from Buckeye Farm Antiques in Sidney.  Steve talked about their show over Memorial Day weekend and extended an invitation to our club to attend.  We have accepted.

We will be at S.C.R.A.P. Labor Day weekend.
