It was a beautiful day on Saturday afternoon, September 18, to get together for our Annual MBCA Ozark Section Membership Recognition Picnic at Orchards Park Pavilion in Bentonville, Arkansas. There were 19 members who attended. We provided anniversary plaques and pins recognizing six Ozark Section members’ anniversaries with the club: 15 Years - Kathy Menold, Joel Menold, Roy Farley; 10 Years - EuGene Smith, Robert Zierak; and 5 Years - Pornthip Seedtibood. We also expressed our appreciation to our officers and board members for their dedicated support of our Ozark Section through their leadership, setting direction and sponsoring so many fun events: President, Dennis Anderson; Vice President, Barbara Lowinger; Treasurer, Ruth Shafer; Secretary, Bob Poulseen; Director, Webmaster, Newsletter, and Prior President, Kathy Menold; Director and Advertising Chair, Joel Menold; Director and Historian, John Miller; Membership Chair, Teresa Poulseen; Hospitality Chair: Diane Paulsen. The club provided delicious boxed lunches from Panera Bread and multiple prizes including Mercedes-Benz branded insulated mugs, key chains and an auto window flag. We also recognized Trina Hammond from Bentonville, one of our newest members of the Section, adding another beautiful SL550 to our fleet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
