The FOTC Annual Dinner was a big success. We had 51 attendees. The group enjoyed presentations by Anna Powell and Dick Gaiser. These two entertained us with such interesting family histories!
Thank you to Jay Watson and his Events Coordinator Cassandra of Indigeny Reserve for all their support and work in creating a beautiful space for us, once again.
Thank you to Dave Ingram, and his team for the delicious and beautifully presented dinner, and to Tommie for his lovely table/flower decorations.
Thank you to Anna Powell for the quilt she lovingly designed and which was raffled off at the dinner. The winning ticket was from a lady who bought raffle tickets at the Mother Lode Fair. She lives in Lathrop and is over the moon about winning the quilt.
Thank you to all who attended. It was so much fun to see familiar faces and many new ones as well.
We elected our new Board Secretary, Kathryn Jackson, who owns Ban Garda Boers. We said an affectionate farewell to Beverly Handelman who finished her 3 year term as Secretary.
We had wonderful raffle and door prizes and realized over $600.00 from both raffles. FYI, Don Moore won Livia Meagher’s secret recipe cheesecake for which there was hot contention. In addition we sang “Happy Birthday” to Livia who turned 89 on August 13.
