MBCA 2019 Christmas Party

38 members and guests enjoyed our December 14th Christmas Party at the Wisconsin Club in downtown Milwaukee.  The Wisconsin Club (former Mitchell Mansion) was beautifully decorated, the weather was perfect and everyone was in a holiday mood. 

While guests mingled and enjoyed lunch, they were treated to a slide show of pictures from all of our events from our 2018 Christmas party to our November 17th Taverne in the Sky event.

After a delicious lunch, President Bruce Hamilton conducted our annual meeting.  Guests and new members were recognized and welcomed, and Bruce reviewed the tentative 2020 event calendar.  Frank Lubinski reviewed the financial condition of the Section and Dan Hellenberg read the minutes from our last annual meeting and announced the results of our 2019 election.  The highlight of the annual meeting was next.

Nancy and Dean Pearson were presented with a Distinguished Service Award for their 42+ years of service to the Wisconsin Section.  Congratulations Nancy and Dean, for all you have done for the Wisconsin Section over the years!

At the conclusion of the Annual Meeting, the proceedings were turned over to Bernd and Christine Kampe to distribute the door prizes they graciously provided for the party.  The highlight item was a battery powered 300SL toy car that went up for auction.  After some spirited bidding, Frank and Cathy Lubinski were the winners with a high bid of $100.00, with the proceeds going to the Food Pantry of Waukesha County.

Other members made cash donations, and with the Section’s contribution a total of $636.00 will be donated to the Food Pantry of Waukesha County.  Including Frank & Cathy’s winning bid a total of $736.00 will be donated to the Food Pantry!

As the festivities wound down, many attendees then toured the Club to admire the ornate furnishings, architecture and Christmas decorations.  What a wonderful party it was!
