Annual Steak Dinner and Auction


The Annual Steak Dinner is held during the month of April at the former Garden Club, where we have our monthly meetings.

The Society will supply the steaks and you bring your own table service (plates and silverware), drinks, and a side dish to share (we suggest salads, vegetables, or dessert).

Setup starts at 10AM. We will be serving the steaks around noon, so get there early for a good seat.

It’s free for paid-up members, guests are $10.00.  The auction will follow after we finish eating. The society has received a number of donations and we'll be auctioning off some of them. You can get some nice things to add to your collection or if you have things to donate please let us know.

Members Dori and Bruce Lawson and Amber and Wesley Griggs have offered to lend us a grill and also cook the steaks! Volunteers are needed to setup and cleanup. As always if you can volunteer let us know!
