MCCPA Annual Banquet
On Saturday, November 15 MCCPA held the annual Banquet. The Banquet is also the final meeting of the 2015 year. The day began with several members taking a steam train ride on the Strasburg Rail Road. They meet more MCCPA members across the street for a tour the Railroad Museum of PA. Then all went to Plain and Fancy Farm for a great meal and the final meeting. The meeting activities included presenting our donation to Leg Up Farm, presenting our scholarship recipient with his check, presenting the members who attended 75% of the regular meetings with gift cards, and electing the board of officers for next year. 2105 was quite a year!

Long Time MCCPA member Carlene said that she and Dale have watched the club grown, and she's so thankful for all the friendships she's gained from it, and that she appreciates everyone. That pretty much nails what the club is about.
