The Oconto Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the joint annual holiday party with the Oconto and Oconto Falls Chambers of Commerce on January 14, 2012, at Irish Greens Golf Club on Logtown Road in Oconto which is own and operated the Jerry Herald family.
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 Chamber wishes to thank those ladies and gents who attended: Chuck & Bernie Burg, Mary Meyer, Doug & Mary Lueskow, Bonnie Radzinski, Bonnie & Tom Whitman, Pat Hanson, Ralph & Pam Loberger, Jean & Bill Pomeroy, Marti Barribeau, and Pat & Gene Fifrick.
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.
