The Mardi Gras theme was extremely popular and everyone had a terrific time. The highlight was presenting Kim Magnuson with the “Outstanding Member Award”. She has made a multitude of contributions to the club, from making the trophies, table runners, Scottie stitched chairs, towels, bar stools, dinner Scottie napkins, and so many other wonderful contributions. Her pleasant and always cheerful nature and comradely made her an easy choice to be the recipient on this highest honor for us to bestow.
Other important mentions are:
Thank you all for your very fine support and hard work!
The party was so festive and the judges were wowed! Mrs. Pat Trotter regular class judge was still talking about the evening the next day when I saw her and Mr. Tom Langham sweeps judge was a ton of fun sporting his Mardi Gras mask at the dinner.
The winners of the raffle for the “Valeria Moldovan Mardi Gras Scottie” was Jeanice Barton of the great state of Texas!
Melanie Eubank was the winner of the beautiful “Over the Rainbow” custom pendant!
In the words of Trent Simmons - Krissy Simmons young son “That was an awesome party!”
Thanks Trent and all who made this year’s specialty such a wonderful fun event!
