ORC Awards Banquet
Congratulations and thank you to the ORC Awards Banquet Committee for another outstanding evening. This years theme, Great Gatsby, was a blast. All the runners were dressed to the 9's, some looked like they just came off a movie set! We had an awesome candy bar with candy only from the 20's. With the 20's décor and table settings the place looked the part. An awesome time was had by all.

Thank you to all who helped setting up this super fun party.

Once again Mark Fletcher took some awesome photos of the evening. Check them out at the ORC Photo Gallery.
