Entertainment by: Matinee Circuit
Kansas City Chorus of Sweet Adelines

Our annual party celebrating Hanukkah and Christmas was an enjoyable event thanks to the great efforts of Terrie Fox, Judy Broome, Marty Young, Betty Roberts, Penrod Turk, and June and Bob Williams among others. Over 50 members, spouses and guests enjoyed a delicious steak dinner sitting at seasonally decorated tables at the Disabled American Veterans Hall on Wednesday, December 18th. As is customary, dinner was proceeded by a thoughtful, timely and heartfelt invocation given by Theda Benningfield, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Not only was the food great, and the camaraderie warm and friendly, but we had the pleasure of hearing The Matinee Circuit, a quartet of the Kansas City Chorus of Sweet Adelines members sing holiday and 40's tunes. Humor punctuated the show, and we were asked to "Name That Tune" when some songs were started with seldom-heard introductions, only to be followed by a familiar melody and catchy words! Gifts were exchanged as well. Pam Ratliff dispensed with business matters, but did allow Larry Young to pitch his fast-selling, only-a-few-left, EAA calendars. A memorable time was had by all, and we all had a "Good Night!"

Mr. Jack May, Director of the Aviation Weather Center for the Kansas City Missouri Office. This should be a very excellent presentation for what we pilots will come to expect for the next generation of weather information available for briefings as well as everyday dissemination on the information at hand. Everyone needs to attend this program.
