A roast is not just cooked meat, as I found out last night. Stan Martin was “roasted” for his 39 years as city auditor. That is when you tell about some embarrassing moments, or make up something that you think they might have done. Maurie Becker, as MC, entertained the crowd. Roasters were Stan’s son Don, wife Norma, Mary Beck, Danelle Olson, Buck Buchholz, Brent Weninger, Frank Ewert & myself.
Stan received a plaque & Norma a bouquet of roses for their years of service. A decorated cake was made by Barbie Martin for the occasion.
A city wide pot luck sponsored by the Anamoose City Board preceded the roast. Tables & tables of food tempted our appetites. I even found out the jambalaya casserole that Scott Piper brought is smoked sausage & spicy rice.
Sandy Cartwright was the lucky winner of a quilt raffle sponsored by the MainStream LLC (Save the Bank). Sandy won a Senior Citizen raffle quilt several years ago.
