The Sierra Chapter Holiday party 2016 version was celebrated on Thursday December 8, 2016. The evening for the 47 members who signed up began with BYO cocktails and appetizers at the Sharp’s residence. No weather excitement this year—power stayed on and the party was enjoyed by the convivial group of members who attended. Those who were not able to attend missed the gala event of the 2016 holiday season. The members brought a wide choice of tasty treats including Jim John’s special meat balls which are always a great hit. The group moved on to Brick’s restaurant for the gourmet three course sit down dinner. The dining began with a Caesar Salad followed by a choice of filet of Sole with Lemon Caper sauce; Pork Tenderloin or Short Ribs. Fourteen members opted to pay extra for Filet Mignon. Desert choice, all delicious, were Key Lime pie, Crème Brulee or Bread Pudding with brandy sauce. The club paid for Smith and Hook Cabernet or Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay Retiring President McGoff scored several gifts for raffle prizes from Bill Pearce. The high light was the presentation by Fred Watson to Pat of an album with pictures of events during Pat’s two years in office. Pat and JoAnn were also present with another gift in appreciation for their two years of service to the Club.
