On Saturday, July 13, 2019, the Mercedes-Benz Ozark Section held its membership luncheon at Mermaid’s Restaurant in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Twenty-two members and two guests attended the annual event.  Masood Khan (Director-at-Large for the National Office) and his wife Farah attended from Edmond, Oklahoma. 

The membership event is held to recognize members that have been in the Mercedes-Benz Club of America for a minimum of five years and for every five years after that. This year, several of our members were presented certificates of appreciation and pins for their loyal membership: Vicki Spranza for five years, Terry Lee for ten years and Dennis Anderson for fifteen years.  Members who were not present but received awards were our five-year members: Woodie Acord, Martin Anderson, Clark Chastain, Aimee Duca, Bryan Sheehan, Hugh Showalter and Bob Wickert.

The Board-of-Directors had a number of door prizes to give away to our members during the luncheon. Each winner was given the opportunity to make a selection.  For the silent auction, Gary and Linn Reusswig donated a wonderful book on Mercedes-Benz, which they had purchased while on a trip to San Francisco.  The bidding started at $50.00, and finally, after a lot of fun and haggling, Masood Khan won the bidding at $75.00.  The silent auction funds are a means of financial support for our Ozark Section.

Dennis Anderson and Jan Sweitzer presented me with a beautiful plaque for my years of service as a board member with the Ozark Section.  They also gave me a past-president gold nametag and pin.  I was greatly surprised and found myself speechless!!

Thank you to Masood and Farah for joining us. Masood talked about the National Office, other sections and information we weren’t aware of.  It was such a pleasure to have them come.
