Annual Banquet 2012

Trip date: 11/03/2012
Reported by: Steve Reynolds

Thanks everyone for the great time at this year’s Annual Banquet! Congratulations to all the school graduates: we look forward to climbing, hiking and being outdoors with you in our events and programs in the future. Special congratulations to Bill and Debbie Pierce as our newest Honorary Members and all they’ve done for our club and community. We were very glad to honor Ida Rowe Dolphin, a past president and the original co-author of “100 Hikes in the Inland Northwest,” who attended and will soon celebrate her 90th birthday.

Big thanks to Brian Hoots as the emcee and to all individuals, including the Social Committee, who organized the banquet, but the biggest thanks goes out to all the directors, instructors, leaders, chairpersons and committee members—all the volunteers who throughout the year make our club so great.
Cheers to the Social Committee who made this event a smash: Stacey Sorg (chair), Jodi Bennin, Kay Guillory, Wendy Huber, Nancy Kiehn, & Rika Ream. Hats off to all who help set up and clean up.

Finally, thank you to this year’s banquet sponsors who donated prizes and support us in our activities:
