Holiday Cheer
2008 Christmas Party
As a club we get together with our significant others and celebrate the Christmas season with each other.  Here are a few pictures from this year's version of this traditional gathering in the lovely home of Roger and Lilian Macauley.

This year's culinary theme was Mexican food.
Lou makes up some very authentic and muy delicioso molé appetizers for Gayla.

There was no reason for anyone to leave hungry, there was more than enough food.
And yes, Bob brought his infamous "Pink Stuff"

The weather was pleasant so some of the ladies took to the patio.

What most of us want in our stockings is train stuff, you know, toys for big boys!

Awards presentation

One of our traditions is for our President to select individuals for recognition for their outstanding contributions to the club.
John, our President could not make the party, but he prepared three awards for 2008 achievements.

On the President's behalf, VP Roger presents an APN Team Award to the Scenery Committee.
Shown are three of the Committee members, Mike, Moe and Bob.

Duane presents an APN Special Award to Roger for his contribution in hosting ProRail


The most prestigious award is the President's Award
This year Johnnie Krezinski was chosen as the recipient of this honor.
Unfortunately Johnnie was not at the party to receive his award
(Actually he preferred instead to be at the clubhouse working!)

This rock tunnel portal scene is an example of Johnnie's talent, and it illustrates his worthiness for this award

We caught Johnnie at the club, working on scenery as usual, the following Saturday.
We held an impromptu ceremony and presented Johnnie with his award then

The 2008 President's Award
As other members look on, John, left, shakes Johnnie's hand to congratulation him for his achievement



Celebration within a Celebration
An APN Milestone - the retiring of our Mortgage

In less than 10 years time as a Club we were able to exceed our expectations and pay off our debt. 
We now own our property and clubhouse free and clear.

These photos show the members with champagne glasses in hand to celebrate this occasion.
