This November 9th banquet was another great one. We had around 90 in attendance which filled the room. We had some big eaters and it looked like we feed more than 100. Lyn Parker gave another outstanding prayer and we enjoyed the great meal. During the entire banquet there was a slide show running covering the 20 years of the club. It was fun to see all the pictures and memories. Larry opened the meeting with the introductions of the board and they each took their turn at the microphone. As each reflected on their last 3 years we heard some very touching messages and at one point I do not think there was a dry eye in the room. The elections were completed and we started having fun with door prizes being given away throughout the meeting.
Larry presented Jeff Miller with the “Life Time Achievement” award. Jeff was truly speechless. Larry presented the Reilly families – Larry, Suzy, Scott and Stacey – with the “Members of the Year” award. All were surprised.
We finished the meeting by drawing the winners of the raffle. The neon sign was won by Gary Carpenter, the 2 chairs by Curt Gottfried and the 1650 FWA toy by Larry Reilly.
If you missed this event you missed a good one. Everyone went home with a full stomach and a smile on their face.
