The Annual Old Timers' Dinner and Social was held on November 11, 2001 with a wonderful turnout of 118 folks. lt was a special evening that gets better every year. The fellowship abounded as many friendships were renewed and the stories of past racing encounters were shared.
The dinner was more than adequate and expertly attended to by the Miller Family. We thank them for all of their hard work that goes into presenting this kind of event and the cleanup afterwords.
The dinner was complemented by some great side dishes and desserts provided by the members and guests. (The mile high Halbedl apple pie is becoming a tradition.)
We thank Don Gamble for hosting the evening and coaxing our guests to the microphone.
It was especially good to see Don Lufffy in attendance as well as Dorthy Haefner. Don Dahle brought a beautiful "coupe cake" and Herb Scott was presented with a lovely pink sheet cake by Miles Witchey.
Door prizes were donated by Jim and Jerri Slade, Lernerville Speedway, Speedway Productions, Bob McWilliams, and Dave Olivieri. Nine envelopes of $10 each were won by: Jim Steigerwald, Dolly Palmer, John Miller, George Powell, Bob McWilliams, Miles Witchey, and Don Dahle (who donated his prize back to the Club to be used for the Children's Christmas Party). Two envelopes were unclaimed and returned to the treasury.
