The Highlands Chapter would like to thank all who attended our
22nd Annual Super Fund Banquet and made it a great success.
We had a great turnout and a great banquet!
Special THANK YOU to Committee Member Donna Yarrish. Donna made this event work.
Our "Western Theme" was complete with coral fencing, hay, saddles, and chocolate covered
Donna took care of making or buying all the "western" decorations used, from the Ranch Gate
entryway to all the table cloths in the silent auction and the back drop over the stage. She
also provided Cactus, "hop-along" ponys, and a host of other items to make the theme work.
No theme would work withot the proper attire. Donna suited up in Chaps, Boots and Spurs to look the part.
The Chapter members wore cowboy attire, Hats, Vests, Western Shirts, etc.
Special prizes were awared
to the best Western Costume, Couple, Individual Male, Female, and Jake.
One couple was outstainding. He wore the complete outfit, boots to hat, vest, Duster, Holster, and his
better half was similarly dressed in the "West". Our auctioneer from "Pennsyltucky" is always attired in western
wear and was awarded for Best Male and one of our Jakes was cowboy for the day and
was rewared with a fishing rod.
