The Michigan party was held Friday, March 1, 2019, and was a great time for the 111 people who came to the event at the San Tan Ballroom in Cottonwood. All enjoyed meeting others from Michigan, feasting on good food and playing Michigan-themed games. The sit-down dinner was wonderful; the Sun Lakes Cottonwood chef served a great Cordon Bleu dinner. Homemade cookies in the shape of Michigan (both peninsulas) were served as dessert. The Trivia and Guess What I Am games were great fun. This year we had a 50/50 draw, two separate draws for door prizes and three raffled baskets filled with donated Michigan-made products.
Next year’s party is in the planning phase, and we need committee volunteers. If interested in serving on a committee, please contact Pearl at 480-305-0286. Special thank yous to the 2019 committee members: Carol Boddy, Sue Donovan, Nancy Hall, Mark Hall, Cindy Krasucki, Pearl Ryan, Lorraine Wiebelhause and Ray Wiebelhause.
