Chapter 36 - Northwest Indiana

~ Creaky Knees and Rusty Keys ~


A good time and good food was had by 21 members and guests at Ryan's Buffet in November. The switch to Friday night was a good move as there actually was a smaller crowd compared to our previous visits on Thursdays. Thursdays are Family Night at Ryan's and quite busy. But our turnout was a little lower this time too. I think this was at least partly due to the fact that the Ft. Wayne Hamfest kicked off the next morning. But there are always conflicts that pop up with a moving meeting such as ours.

We didn't have any show-and-tell items this month, so that leaves little more to cover here.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving holiday that is now upon us! We will also meet again in December before Christmas, so watch for further announcements. Below are other local club meetings coming up in December... that is, other eating opportunities!

Friday, Dec. 6th, 7:30pm, is the Porter County ARC Christmas Party. Meal is catered by Ruge Meats and cost is $12 per person. Bringing a dessert is appreciated. Location is the Westchester Library Service Center at 100 West Indiana Avenue in Chesterton.

Saturday, Dec. 7th, at 6:00pm CST (7:00pm EST), is the Starke County ARC Christmas Party. The location is the Ponderosa Steakhouse in Plymouth.
