2015 Christmas Party
On December 12, 2015 the Rochester IBM Alumni Club hosted their annual Christmas Party. 

The 2015 IBM Alumni Christmas Party was held December 12th at the local Eagles Club. About 150 Alumni members, spouses, and guests enjoyed great food, a great venue, great conversation! Attendance was down a bit but all attendees seemed happy to be there.

The Eagles club did another fantastic job in setting up the room and organizing the food lines. We had many positive comments again this year.

We want to recognize the wonderful donors of door prizes: Culvers, Honkers Baseball, Grandma's Kitchen, Rochester Athletic Club, Eagles Club, Carousel Flowers, Victoria's Restaurant, Hair Studio 52, Pharmaceutial Specialities, and Rochester Ford/Toyota.

We also had a fantastic group of volunteers help run this event. Thanks to all the board members and spouses who manned the serving lines. Darlene Burchfiel and Barb Nord took command of the cake! We had wonderful help at the registration table and wonderful help passing out the door prizes. Nancy Morrison once again brought and set out the decorations. Dick Odell was the photographer. A very special thanks to Betty Shidler and Alice Miesbauer (spouses) who helped everywhere but especially with setup and cleanup. This is what it takes to have such a successful party. Thank you everyone!

Another party is planned for December 2016 - look for the announcement!
