December Holiday Dinner

December Holiday Dinner

Texas Hill Country
Saturday, December 7, 2019 -
6:30pm to 9:30pm
San Antonio

Our December Holiday dinner was held at Don and Louis's house on Saturday night. Barbecue with all the sides were provided to members by the club. We held a white elephant gift exchange. The hit seemed to be a pink insulated Mercedes-Benz tumbler. There was also a 1954 300SL model that was making the rounds until it reached the third trade. Martin Rios was the the proud owner at that point. Christmas ornaments, Mercedes-Benz accessories and even gift certificates from Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio given out.

Aside from about 30 club members, we also had Paul Spencer our sales representative from Mercedes-Benz of San Antonio. He  brought a new GLS450 for everyone to check out. A beautiful vehicle loaded with all the bells and whistles. We were honored to have Bret Jurick, our South Central Regional Director join our party. Every year, he will visit with one of the  regional clubs. His main reason for this visit was to present our Club President Don Dionisi with the Officer of the Year award. Don has worked very hard to make our club successful. We were all very proud - and Don was surprised!

We also presented our Member of the Year award to Louis Forrai. Louis graciously accepted the new position of Member Chair who will welcome new members and make the introductions to the other members. He will also be our event coordinator. We appreciate Louis for what he does.

Dan Coburn was presented with an award for Director of the Year. The Texas Hill Country Section values Dan and all his efforts to help make our monthly events a fun and interesting experience - and we thank him for it.

Bill and Lucy Rasco brought their newly acquired 2015 S550 - with only 3600 miles on it. That car is basically brand new... not even broken in. They love their new car. Bill traded in his 1995 S500 that was in immaculate condition. Who ever purchases that car will get a great one too.
