By all indications the banquet was a success. The attendance was awesome even though presales of tickets was low. Everyone who said they would buy tickets at the door pretty much did attend and then some. Thanks to all the donors, the TIC schools who were able to be there (East Wilkes Middle School, Watauga High School), and the officers who made it possible. Thanks to the Elks Lodge for a good meal and to our hostesses for a job well done. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
