December brings NYConn's most popular event of the year, our annual Holiday Party. Our new venue this year, the conveniently located Le Fontane Ristorante in Somers, NY was a great hit with all in attendance. Fine Italian food, individual entrees, pleasant, efficient service and a room ideal for the size of our crowd made for a lovely afternoon.
Our thanks to Andrea Fanelli and Judy Johnson for finding the venue and organizing the party. It was a winner, and we’re already booked back here for 2011’s Holiday Party. Over forty NYConn members joined in lively conversation, great food, and the famous NYConn raffle and auction conducted by Charley Robinson.
The money raised, funds our chapter events throughout the year. While there was a scarcity of MG Parts in the raffle and auction, homemade cookies by Sandy Hurd, a variety of wines, Curt Beck’s mystery prizes and two fabulous gift baskets were big hits.
Andrea Fanelli's MG Trivia contest (with answers here) featured a series of questions about the New England MG-T Register GOF’s. It presented a challenge that “stumped the stars” this year. In the end, the contest was settled with a Jan Hurd win, as he took home a bottle of fine chardonnay.
NYConn’s 2011 Calendar is on our web site now. Check out the schedule, mark your calendar, and plan to join the fun events we enjoy year round. Our calendar features both indoor and outdoor events, with and without your MG. We look forward to seeing everyone at a NYConn event this coming year. Best wishes to all for a Happy and Healthy New Year. We look forward to your company for 2011.
