MARC 2018 Christmas Party


The MARC 2018 Christmas Party was held at the South Bend Elk’s Club this year. The Elk’s Club did a fine job of providing us with plenty of good food. We had the Lodge Buffet which included Fish, Chicken and Beef along with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Broccoli, a side Salad and Dinner Rolls. For Desert we had a variety of Cream Pies to choose from. A cash bar was open for those wanting drinks. Members had plenty of time to socialize before and after dinner.

After the Elk’s Staff cleared the tables; Keith Wishmeier and Mike Ciesiolka held the Drawing for several nice Ham Radio related gifts. The Ladies in the group all received a Poinsettia Plant to take home. We also treated the Elk’s Staff to Poinsettia Plants in appreciation for their fine service.
