Last night was the CARS Holiday Banquet at Bella’s in Savannah. If you were unable to attend, you missed a really nice event and we missed your company. Jere KT4ZB had prepared a Powerpoint show of the past years activities, photos of members and some Historical pictures that displayed on screen for all to see. This ran throughout the evening! People arrived, grabbed their place tags and a chair and began socializing with each other. Plenty of laughter was heard as many milled about to visit each other.
The Staff announced dinner and everyone took their seats as they began bringing out breadsticks and salad, followed shortly by everyone’s main course. The food and service was Excellent.
After dinner, a raflle was conducted for Door Prizes and this was handled by Jere’s wife Connie and able assistance of Kevin KW4B. The grand prize (Hallicrafters Receiver) was won by Mayes N1RKA. Mayes, as outgoing President then got up to make a couple announcements and present a few awards. 1st of these was a CARS certificate for the work the following members did during the Hurricane:
Steve Jonas K4SDJ
Sue Jonas W4SWJ Ken Griffin W4JKG
David Delamater K4DJD Pat McGhie KB1WEI
Lester Lamhut KF4JBQ Kevin Bell KW4B
This was followed by the Presentation of the Amateur Of The Year Award as voted by the Membership. This years award went to Ken Griffin W4JKG! Congrats Ken, well deserved!
