MG3 Gala Dinner & 2015 AGM
MG3 Gala Dinner & 2015 AGMClub members gathered at the Town Club in Fox Point Friday night, January 23 for the annual AGM and Gala Dinner. Many arrived early, greeting and bantering in the reception room with some new, some long-time, and even former members (emeritus status?). Items displayed on tables saw bidding begin right away for silent-auction wares. Roving waitstaff took drink orders and served appetizers to guests. Also on display were the Lost Soul Rally Silver Cup, the “Better Luck Next Time”, and the vaunted Lucas-Murphy trophies.
Time came for dinner to start as the group made their way to set tables in the dining room. The TC waitstaff served to the tables in a most efficient manner and paced the dinner well. After coffee & dessert, and short break to view and final bid on silent-auction items, the AGM commenced with reports from officers. Members thanked retiring Treasurer Anita Wojchiechowski and voted to a 2-year term as Treasurer, Marylou Campbell. All other officers were re-elected.
Gregg Button & Sarah Vester coordinated, set up, and managed the auctions, with Chris Christensen conducting as auctioneer. What a great way to wrap up the evening!
SPECIAL THANKS go to Bill Hentzen for offering up the Town Club as venue and managing the registration, Gregg Button, Sarah Vester and Chris Christensen for pulling off the auction, and Ken Rizzo for putting together and projecting a superb slide show throughout the evening. Thank you to all who attended, bid on auction items, and kicked off the 2015 season in festive fashion. Welcome to the new members. Bring on the Spring & Summer!
