More than sixty members and guests turned out for the 2016 Awards Banquet, catered this year by G&G Roughneck Services. You may remember that this family bought our cook trailer to start their catering business, and they put out some “mighty fine grub”.
John Williams (L) and Bob Keating enjoy a laugh at the banquet.
