Annual Dinner Wrap-Up - Part 1

Last nights annual member/volunteer dinner was a wonderful evening.

First up was the business of the theatre. According to the bi-laws of Civic Theatre, the membership votes on the Board of Directors. Traditionally a slate of new officers is presented to the membership, someone makes a motion to accept the slate as listed, the motion is seconded and the vote is called. Last night was no different. The list was read by Laurie Russell, representing the nominating committee. The board members elected last night are:

3 year terms:
Rod Ray
Laurie Russell
Larry Sommers
Kris Kazmierczak
Denise Laussade

1 year terms:
Julia Colby
Helen Slagel
Steve Martin (my fellow blogger!)

Outgoing board members were also recognized and thanked for their service, the three members who rotated off were:
Jeff Wier
Nate Barrett
Bob Mindrum

After the single agenda item was taken care of, the meeting was adjourned and dinner was served. The annual dinner has for years consisted of fried chicken (supplied by Civic Theatre) and items brought by the members and volunteers. One of my personal favorites was a wonderful broccoli casserole prepared by Youth Director, Melanie R. Buchanan. The desert room (yes an entire room) was filled with wonderfully decadent dishes. I think I may have overdone it just a bit, but there were homemade chocolate chip cookies (proveded by Bailey Rosa, although I believe they were prepared by Julie Rosa) and I cannot pass on homemade cookies.

After dinner, the volunteer recognition began, but that will wait for another post.
