2013 Holiday Party

2013 Holiday Party  Report

Sixty-three people attended the annual Holiday Party at Chandler's Chop House, This year we were upstairs in a spacious room and were seated at tables of eight. 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. As usual, the tables were set with T-Bird centerpieces along with mini-candy bars personalized with "CTCC" At each place was a handmade Thunderbird cookie, purchased to benefit the People's Resource Center/Food Pantry, to which the club members have generously donated for the past few years.

Following the cocktail hour and delicious dinner, the group sang Happy Birthday to various members. President, Ken Srnizinski, made a few announcements and Len Keil talked about the 2014 Spring Tour, Ken announced the winners of the Bert Eisenhour Award - Pete and Marylu Kramer. Ken Srnizinski drew names for the door-prize raffle Everyone went home with several 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 - including bottles of wine, to Pete Kramer and his son, Steve, for the Year-ln Review show and DVDs, to Liz and Bill Werth for the cookies, centerpieces and candy, and to all those who donated items for the door prizes As always, it was a fun night in a nice venue.
