Growl News

The latest from our members and Jaguar news.

Hello Everyone,

Kelly and Sally Waite and Jen and I would like to thank everyone who was able to make it to the Deer Creek Awards banquet last night. The weather cooperated and gave us a rain and snow free evening.

As usual the food was top notch from the staff at Deer Creek. A big thank you to Curt and Robin Engler for allowing us to use the Deer Creek again.

After dinner Terry Zerr started the evening festivities turning the microphone over to Jeff Homsher who spoke about It’s Alive and the trials and tribulations of being in business for yourself.

There were multiple awards given out last night. Thank you to all of our club members who sponsored events throughout the year as well those of you who do a lot of work behind the scenes.
