Annual meeting will be held at 4:00pm,happy hour at 5:00pm, with dinner at 6:00pm.

There will be an awards program, silent auction, door prizes, and a meeting. At this time we have 5 contest entries to sell in our silent auction. We also have donations from: Butcher BBQ, Grill Grates, Maverick, Fruitia Woods, Iowa Wholesale Supply, Louisiana Grills, Des Moines Downtown Marriott, Clarion Hotel of Mason City, Iowa, Isle of Capri Hotel and Casino in Waterloo, Iowa and MUCH MORE!
