The LWMGC yearly Awards presentation and formal Dinner Dance was held on January 20th at Clubhouse 5. The room was beautifully decorated with big city themed lighted wall decor, and the tables with custom lighted center pieces, bottled wine and formal dinnerware.
Club Officers welcomed couples at the door and presented the ladies with long-stemmed roses. Guests made their way to a photo portrait setting where our Club resident pro photographer Peter Battin memorialized guests' attendance.
Servers roamed the room with passed appetizers, while the full open bar was frequented. The 11-piece band, Close Harmony, provided a variety of dance music for the entire evening.
After dinner Club officers made award presentations to tournament winners and recognition for individuals' Club service.
See PHOTOS of the evening here.
Hard copy prints of your individual couple photos should be available
at the Tuesday, Jan 28th Club General Meeting (Clubhouse 2 @ 7:15 AM).
