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.
In addition to swearing in the officers for 2017, Awards for this past year were handed out.

Congratulations to you all and thank you for all you do for us.
And finally, we want to congratulate Russel and Dorothy Snook, who celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary with us that night.
