2012 CTCC Holiday Party


Unseasonably warm weather on December 1 was appreciated by the 69 people who attended the annual Holiday Party at Chandler's Chop House. Most guests received the annual "change your oil" reminder filters, while some of those without cars received appropriate favors. Everyone received a copy of the "Year-In-Review" DVD. The tables were set with T-Bird centerpieces, plates of Andes mints and, at each place, a handmade cookie, purchased to benefit the People's Resource Center/Food Pantry to which the club members have generously donated several times.

Following the cocktail hour and delicious dinner, Lloyd Schellin and Karen Kelly sang Happy Birthday to Mary Keil and Dan Mrozek and Happy Anniversary to Doug and Soon Hee Rogers. President Pete Kramer then made a few announcements, Ed Levin talked about the 2013 Spring Tour and Ken Smizinski updated the group on the progress of our bid for hosting the 2014 CTCI International Convention. (It has not yet been sanctioned.) Pete announced the winners of the Bert Eisenhour Award - Tom and Judy Bruin. Ken Smizinski and Len Vinyard then drew names for the door-prize raffle. The names were called in three rounds, so everyone went home with a pile of gifts.

Many thanks to Ken and Kathy Smizinski for planning the party, making the name cards and obtaining the oil filters and many of the door prizes, to Pete Kramer and his son, Steve, for the Year-In-Review show and DVDs, to Marylu Kramer for help with setting up, to Liz and Bill Werth for the cookies, centerpieces and mints, and to all those who donated items for the door prizes. As always, it was a fun night in a nice venue. Mark your calendars for December 7, 2013 - same place and time, slightly different menu!
