The Tri-County Riding Club held their annual Awards Banquet on Sunday, November 23, 2008 at the Alder Flats Bowling Alley in the Seniors Centre.
As always, it was a potluck affair with a huge variety of delicious dishes made by club members. The gathering was very well attended, although some of our members and invited guests were unable to make it.
