There has been nothing but compliments regarding the 58th FSA Hall of Fame Banquet held in Sebring FL on January 15th, 2018. The Banquet went off without a hitch!!
Ruth Brown, organizing chairperson, reported to the FSA Board on March 17th, 2017, that the Central District will host Hall of Fame Banquet at Sebring in January, 2018. The Island View Lakefront Restaurant on Sun N Lake Blvd. will seat 150 people and the cost will be $35.00 for either sirloin or fish. A block of rooms has been reserved at Quality Inn for $74.00. Ruth expressed her appreciation for the advice and assistance of Colleen Austin for the help she has given her Committee.
While much work had been done when Ruth gave this report, much more remained TO BE DONE!! I don’t think Ruth and her Committee have stopped work since!! As is often the case, those most intimately involved, those closest to the success, the Organizing Committee, are under appreciated. I endeavoured to capture a pic of the Committee on the night of the banquet; however as you may have guessed, they were “too busy”, too fully occupied. I give you their names: Chairperson Ruth Brown; most experienced digital helper, Colleen Austin; “Right Hand Man” to the Committee, Mr. Larry Brown, former just about everything, AND CD State Delegate; Marti Noble, FSA 2nd VP; Linda Rebholz, FSA Secretary; Judy Holloway and Rosemary Comeau both of the Sebring Board.
