Our annual Holiday Party was held on the afternoon of December 8th at the Mystic Creek Golf Club & Banquet Center in Milford. Participation was very good with fifty people registered. The banquet room was very nicely decorated with an amazing red “Santa” tree at the far end of the room, overlooking the golf course. Several other trees and room and table decorations provided a very festive environment. Gary Hildebrand had many photos of the club’s activities throughout the year, displayed in a loop on the wall-mounted TV monitor. This showed what a great year we had with lots of opportunities to drive our Jaguars, explore the region and enjoy the company of others.
Following a plentiful and delicious buffet, we held our annual charity auction to raise money for “Home for Our Troops”. Teresa Klotz introduced our returning auctioneer, Jason Mattison, and his two assistants, Pauline Blunt and Connie Mysercough. Before beginning, Jason reminded all of us why we hold the auction and how the proceeds are used in the building of modified houses for our disabled veterans. During the next one and a half hours, Jason skillfully auctioned off all of the donated items. After the auction results were tallied, we raised $1,371. A fantastic job!
The club also supported the “Toys for Tots” campaign. Members donated many new toys and also made monetary donations to support this Children’s Christmas Program. After the event, Tim and Tina Moore delivered the toys to a drop-off location in Novi, where a campaign event was taking place. There they met with the Toys for Tots Regional Director and several Marines.
After all the well-wishing for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, we departed for home.
