Fifty club members gathered Saturday evening January 23 at the Steakhouse 100 restaurant in West Allis for this annual event (with some no-shows). Three members new to the club in 2015 were especially welcomed. After an hour long reception with appetizers, guests were served dinner on time as the staff was efficient in getting meals out of a very busy kitchen. Thanks to Chuck Lelinski for his efforts in coordinating.
This year’s auction was a silent one with a variety of items being bid on. Anne-Marie and Dave Hanson handled the set up and auction…much thanks to them.
During the meeting portion of the night, officers and national register liaisons spoke. Bernie Evans declared the Time-Speed-Distance rally to be retired. The officers standing for election to 2-year terms:
President Dave Jefferson
VP Social Bernie Evans
Webmaster Ken Rizzo
Secretary Joan Houillon
were all re-elected unanimously.
The Lucas-Murphy Award for 2015 was presented to Dave Hanson for his coolant system breakdown and miraculous repair on the Fall Tour to Reedsburg. Bob Houillon declared the award is now retired.
Thanks to those who worked to stage this event, and to all who attended, donated items, and bid on the fundraising auction.
