Annual Christmas Dinner Carterville Rotary Style

We had another fun filled Christmas Dinner at John A. Logan this year. This was my first dinner so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was nice getting together with the rest of the club members and their spouses. Good conversations with good folks; you just can't beat it.

What made the night really fun was the auctioning off of the member donated wrapped gifts. The contents only known by the donor but with a clever riddle attached to leave us wondering what was beneath the Christmas wrapping. Bids were out in full force, since the proceeds all went back to Club. As Rich Davis exclaimed, "It's for the kids!". All in all we raised over $2000 for the night. That was a good night "for the kids". Good job Carterville Rotary Club members!
