Currents - June/July 2017
Greetings from the Colorado Valley!
Well if you didn’t make our banquet, you missed a great one! This was our chapter’s 17th Annual Banquet – We had a full house again this year, and everyone had a very fun night. CCA is celebrating its 40th birthday, and we also are celebrating a victory for doing our part in contributing to our great cause.
Our banquet board members Rusty and Trish Kubena, Bo and Gary Janda, Dave Fehlker, Danny Olenick, Kenneth LeFrance, Kendall Rhode, George Gold and Eugene Ulrich worked very hard and did a tremendous job of selling tables and raffle tickets, securing sponsors, decorating the hall and planning our banquet to make sure the night’s events went well. Of course we could not have accomplished everything without our banquet assistants Laurie and Connie Janda, JK and Karie Brandt, Brenda Fehlker, Verlene Ulrich, Matthew and Stephen LeFrance and Mike Petras.
Our chapter would like to send out a special thank you to our long time sponsors Academy Sports + Outdoors, Brown Distributing, Capitol Wright Distributing and Ozarka Beverage Company for their continued support throughout the year. We would also like to thank all the other sponsors who help make our program so great and beneficial to CCA Texas.
Thanks goes out as well to the Knights of Columbus team who prepared and served our delicious ribeye steak and shrimp meal. Many many thanks also goes out to all those who purchased tables for the first time and/or our returning friends. Thank you to those who donated items and/or supported our live auction, silent auction, bucket raffle and other fun games. Thanks also goes out to our Koozie Sponsors M-G Farm Service Center and Dart Frog LLC; Miller NRG, Inc. for being our Tumbler Sponsor; Murphy’s Steakhouse for our door prize; First National Bank Bastrop/Smithville, LaGrange Ford, National Bank and Trust, Powerscreen Texas, Inc. and Round Top National Bank for being our Print Sponsors; our Cap Sponsors J&J Metal Works, Inc., Lakeview Glass and Mirror and Oviedo Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram; and Live Auction Purchaser Cap Sponsors Joe Rogers’ Dozer Service and We Stitch LaGrange.
We certainly enjoyed hosting everyone at the event and sincerely hope that everyone enjoyed themselves enough to come visit us again next year. Wishing bent rods and tight lines to all! – Eugene Ulrich
