Awards Banquet 2016

The club held it’s annual Awards Banquet and Inauguration Ceremony December 10th. A good time was had by all and the food was outstanding. Vivian Howard did a great job pulling the event together. Special thanks to to Cliff Vanderzanden for carving the delicious beef roast and to Colin Kaeder, who is not a member, for his culinary skill in preparing it. Colin smoked the roast for many hours prior to cooking it.

Everyone I spoke to raved about it’s flavor and how tender it was. You could cut it with a plastic fork!




We also had a raffle with some absolutely fabulous items. This year there were 34 items, so many attendees went home with a prize.
