CVAEMA’s annual Winter Banquet was held Saturday, January 26th at Solomon’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Chambersburg. The gymnasium was noisy as everyone was socializing while waiting for the program to begin. At 6:00 pm President Jack Horner got the banquet underway and after the blessing by Pastor Joel Nupp, a delicious meal of chicken, meatballs, potato casserole, peas, carrots, creamed lettuce, pie and ice cream was served by the church.
After everyone had eaten their fill (someone was seen eating three bowls of creamed lettuce…you know who you are!), President Horner reviewed this past year’s projects at the club grounds. Vice President Alex Baker recognized the leadership, board of directors and the many other people who make the shows run smoothly. Treasurer Cindy Stratton spoke on the financial highlights of this past year. She noted that Doc Stratton was the clubs treasurer from 1995 until this past year. Much appreciation for all the work and time he gives to the club.
A group from the Chambersburg FFA gave a nice presentation of their tractor rebuild of a MF65. Historian Stephen Piper encouraged everyone to check out the Agricultural and Industrial Museum in York, PA. He also presented anniversary walking sticks to two more founding members that hadn’t received one last year.
Carl and Lily Fahnestock provided the entertainment for the evening. A very nice evening was had by all and it was great to see so many members attending.
