It is not too early to mark your calendar and register for the Club’s Annual Banquet and Celebration. It will be held on Saturday, October 26th, from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the AMVETS Post #9 in Middletown, MD. We have some exciting plans for this year’s event, starting with a change from past menus, our Banquet will be catered by Lt. Col. Big Jim’s Tennessee BBQ!
As you sort through your equipment, now would be a good time to set aside some items to donate for the Silent Auction and Bucket Raffle. We will also have a Thomas & Thomas Rod Raffle and much more! If you have any ideas and/or suggestions, please let Andy Mekelburg, Banquet Chairman know. See you there!
Banquet Donations Needed!
Monies raised during our banquet come primarily from donations by club members.
The banquet is our main fundraiser for the year — these funds help pay for the various activities we offer throughout the coming year. The $12.00 annual Club dues that everyone pays does not cover all of our expenses.
Donations can be a fly rod or some other piece of fly fishing equipment that you are no longer using, but it doesn’t need to be fly fishing related. It could be a bottle of wine or a gift basket. Please consider donating to the banquet.
If you would like to make a donation, you can bring your donation to any Monthly Meeting or contact us.
