2012 Awards Night Recap

This past Saturday OAC members enjoyed a nice dinner and awards presentation. We also managed to raise about 4K for the club with our live auction and 50/50 raffle. Dick Egan won over $1,700 in the raffle. He should thank Missy McGraw for drawing his winning ticket! Thank you to all of our members that purchased tickets and help support the club. I would also like to thank the following people for donating our live auction items: Captain Ron Murphy, Glenn Wattley, Missy & Dave McGraw, Frank Best, Scott Swaylik and Andy Little. In addition, thank you to member Ken Cirillo for creating a nice power point presentation on our flat screen TV and all the members that sent in pictures for our slideshow.
