Every year during the slow wintertime months we throw a big buffet dinner for our membership. We call it our “Annual UFO Banquet/Roast”. The highlight of the evening is our ’Roast & Toast’ presentation where club members are ‘roasted’ and/or ‘toasted’ by their fellow members for memorable happenings during the past year. All members are encouraged to participate. But we do ask that you inform our master of ceremonies of your ’award’ so they can adhere to our time schedule.

The club heavily subsidizes the cost of the evening, generally charging our members only a modest reservation/registration fee per family member. (which is set by majority vote of our membership that attend our meetings held 2 times a month) The club provides door prizes and entertainment and at times decor. We rely on the membership to make suggestions and volunteer to plan and run the banquet.

The best facilities book early so we need to start planning for next years banquet soon. We could sure use some fresh ideas and volunteers to make this event enjoyable for all. Please consider coming to the meetings and getting involved.

Text Box: Lots and lots of good company! We welcomed home our own Darin (Dee) Burton  (front and center) who just returned from a year long deployment in Iraq. We are so thankful for his safe return and for his commitment to preserving the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of  this great country. 
Text Box: The theme of this past banquet was Remembering the ‘50’s and 60’s. Several of our members dressed the part. Poodle skirts, bobbie socks, satin jackets, chiffon scarves, gals wearing their dads big white oxford shirts, pony tails and guys with cig packs rolled up in their t-shirt sleeves. GOLLY! SOME OF US REALLY ARE OLD!
