The theme was a “Historic Holiday on the Bay”. The major door prize was a weekend stay at the White Lace Inn in Sturgeon Bay which was won by Laurie Matel of NEW Credit Union . To enhance the theme, the Victorian Ladies and Gents attended in all their splendor and Victorian garb.

The menu included roasted turkey and baked ham with all the trimmings. Shirley Steier and her staff at Irish Greens did an excellent job in making this meal extra special. Clarinet music during the buffet was provided by Rebecca Erdman and Kayla Kuntz, juniors at Oconto High School under the direction of Mike Marciniak. A 32” LCD TV was raffled and the winner was Paul Trepanier.

The Chamber also wishes to thank Graphic Management, Stephenson National Bank & Trust, Patsy Bake of Avon, Bay Impressions, Irish Greens and Image Apparel for providing door prizes for this event. A special thank goes out to Pat Hanson who designed and created all of the beautiful table decorations and Ralph & Pam Loberger who brought in some of their Victorian decorations.
