Christmas party an elegant affair

The Eastern Oklahoma section held their annual Christmas party/December meeting on Thursday December 14, 2017 at The Bistro at Seville.  Members were treated to a very nice dinner with many entrees to choose from including favorites such as Filet wrapped in bacon, bone in pork chop and crab stuffed trout.

The evening was highlighted by two special awards.   Ben Cunningham was presented an award for his leadership and commitment to the section over the past years as Board member, Vice President, and newsletter editor.  Many thanks to his committed service.   Member of the year was awarded to Richard Jagel.  Richard has served the section for five years as section Treasurer.   He has been very committed to sound financial controls and making sure that the section lives within its means.  Through his guidance, the section has recovered from a weak financial position to one where we are building a treasury capable of supporting bigger initiatives.

Hundreds of pounds of canned goods and other food items were collected for donation to the Broken Arrow neighbor’s food pantry.   A special Mercedes Salsa was a favor to each couple who attended as a gift from the section for their support in 2017.   The peach salsa variety proved to be the favorite.

The evening would not be complete without the ever popular “Dirty Santa”.   Members swapped gits ranging from items for your “man purse” to the ever-favorite bottles of wine and delicious cookies.  There were quite a few “steals” especially picked on was former section President William Hill who had his choices stolen three times.                                                                                    

Special thanks go out to Harriet Kushnerick for her decorating skills and attention to detail.   We all agree it was our nicest Christmas party ever.
