Our Annual Holiday Party is on this year!!

Our holiday dinner, the election of officers, and the auction are back on for this year. November 12th, Sunday. Setup is from 11 am to noon. Dinner will be served at noon.

The club will provide roasted turkey and ham. You bring something to fill in the dinner selections. We generally have around 40 to 45 people attend.

Our holiday party is being held in our regular meeting room at the American Legion Hall. The address is in the upper right corner of the club website.


Following dinner, we will have the election of officers and then an auction. Our club auctions are where you can snag some great bargains. It’s also a great time to just sit and visit with one another.

Please mark your calendars now and plan on joining us for a great time.
