Special thanks were given to the club, also to John Crawford, to Deb Stowe and Misty Blackwell, and to Board members for setting up the banquet hall. The delicious meal was catered by Sweet P’s, and the bar was co-sponsored by TJ’s Package Store. Four $25 McDonald’s gift cards, donated by Jim Aaron, were given out to randomly picked numbers
