2010 Banquet Held January 30th, 2010

Following the success of the 2009 January banquet, the 2010 Prairie Rockets Banquet was held on Saturday, January 30th at the Hill Prairie Winery in Oakford, IL. Committee meetings are typically held on selected Tuesday nights at the J&B Sports Bar in Petersburg. All chapter members and prospective members are always invited to attend any chapter meetings.

The 2009 activities of the Prairie Rockets Chapter began with a new January 31st date for our annual fundraising banquet. Late January or early February dates have been requested to allow members who are landowners and/or farmers a chance to attend the banquet without conflicting with the busy agricultural season in the Spring. This appeared to be a popular choice, and the 2009 and 2010 banquets were well-attended.
