Our host card stops generously donated space and time for over 200 participants. They were Low Key Tiki, Ragged Ass, American Legion, KOA, residents of Tropical Point Dr. and the VFW. Our card dealers dealt almost 4,000 cards. Thank you John, Rae Ann, Butch, Stubby, Billy, Jack, John, Mary, Joe, Di, Tom and Jim. Our kitchen crew Joe, Mary, Dave, JoAnna, Roxanne and Sheri stayed up with the demand with delicious food. The biggest winners are Island High School seniors receiving scholarships this year.
