The latest from CURRENTS

We held our banquet on March 31 and it turned out to be a very successful event. We again enjoyed a sold-out crowd and truly appreciated everyone’s participation whether they were sponsors, donors, committee personnel, or just friendly conservationist out to enjoy a good time. Our board members along with all of our banquet assistants worked diligently to prepare and carry out the evening’s activities. Our board members included Eugene Ulrich, Danny Olenick, Trish Kubena, Gary Janda, Rusty Kubena, Dave Fehlker, Kenneth LeFrance, Kendall Rohde, and Jeff Burgh. The list of our assistants included Connie Janda, George Gold, Betty Urban, John Gold, Kristina Gold, Mike Petras, Norma Petras, Matthew LeFrance, Stephen LeFrance, Verlene Ulrich, Lucas Janda, Kalynn Hodges, and Robert Hodges. I wish to extend a huge thank you to John Gold who again created the wonderful banquet program for us this year. Everyone enjoyed a delicious ribeye steak and shrimp meal expertly prepared by the Knights of Columbus members while also enjoying drinks provided by Brown Distributing-Budweiser.
