The daffodils have wilted, the delicious food has long been digested, the energetic Fiddle music and friendly chats are now only memories..and perhaps some wallets are a bit skinnier.  But what a better cause!  Pub Night 2002, despite a smaller crowd (98 rather than the average 113) was another success and those who attended had a wonderful evening!  The total auction revenue was $1781.50.   The bust of Arthur Bowley (A Bit 'O Brecon History) went to Walt and Nancy Byers, the highest bidders at $210.  Ten businesses contributed auction items:

 Cobblestone Rose; Lewis Jewelers (Ann Arbor); Distinctive Creations; Rustic Glen Golf Course; Earthen Craft Pottery (Sutton's Bay); Saline Picture Frame; Express Tire; The British Pantry; Great Harvest Bread; Tom Mac's Photography 

17 individuals contributed items as well including:

 Ralph Amsler; Earl & Edna Laughry; Audrey & Barry Barkel; Marion & Joan Lee; Susan Blake: Pat & Sheila Little; Kent Brown & Pam Byrnes; Mary Martin; Gene DeRossett; Bob & Pam Phillips; Linda Duvall; Bonnie Rahn; Jim & Susan Keezer; Joan Roth; Doris Kraushaar; Ted Toth; Gerry Wingate

 The Guild wishes to thank you all for your contributions and, of course, your presence and spirit for the event!!  We trust those who could not attend this year will be able to come next year,  Friday, February 28, 2003!!

 The Sustaining Membership Drawing was comprised of three items this year.  The following Sustaining Membership members were winners:

1st Drawing - $250 check from the Guild - Mariel Peck

2nd Drawing - $200 Gift Certificate to Weber's - Doug Peck

3rd Drawing - $50 Gift Certificate to Mac's Seafood - Louise Lowe

 Some may wonder how the Pecks won two prizes.  This was an absolute fluke!  Each Sustaining Member gets a ticket placed in the drawing.  The Guild board members have decided to hold the Sustaining Membership Drawing at one of the other social functions held during the year (beginning in 2003)

 Joann Straub catered the buffet dinner again this year and did another outstanding job!  The baked chicken was moist, and tasty, and the Tater Crust fish was a hit again along with the scalloped potatoes!  We can't forget the delicious apple strudel and blueberry cheesecake which just hit the spot! 

 I would be remiss without thanking all the Guild members and workers to make the event a success.  A very special thanks to Sheila Little for coordinating the silent and live auction.  Mark Hopper, Pat Little, and Gretchen Driskell did a great job enticing bidders.  This was a bigger challenge this year with a lower number of attendees and people being more conservative with their spending. 

 Our net revenue for Pub Night 2002 was $1410.95.  We look forward to next year's event.  Put Friday, February 28, 2003 on your calendars!
