ATCA Annual Banquet and Montgomery 2019 Deadlines

ATCA Annual Banquet

It’s that time of year again when you need to be thinking about the wonderful ATCA Banquet and Silent & Live Auction at the Empress Room .  The menu we have in store is sure to cure any appetite you may bring, along with wine, beer and soft drinks to satisfy your thirst after a day at the show.  

The date to remember is Friday October 4, 2019 at 6:00pm for the banquet.  You will need reservations which are due to Lanny Duttlinger by Sept. 23, 2019.  Tickets are $45 each or $55 after Sept. 23, 2019.  SAVE $10 and get your reservation in NOW.  It’s a fun evening of dining and hospitality with your friends and other members of ATCA. 

Send your payment to Lanny Duttlinger, 5166 Crestdale Dr., Rockford, IL 61114-6474.  Hope to see all of you there.  Don’t forget, ACT NOW!
