Our 10th Gala was held October 26, 2019.
As this was our 10th Gala we wanted to celebrate!
For our Guest Speaker we had Jay Onrait from TSN. Jay thoroughly entertained the crowd with many stories throughout the night. We auctioned him off to the highest bidder to sit with the winning table for supper. He helped with our MC Brian Callum’s speeches and visited with the crowd the whole night.
Our citizen of the year was Joan Driedger. Joan’s tireless work with the Miami Railway Museum has put Miami on the map.
We were able to give out the most money to our Grant recipients to date of $16,000. These grants were given to the following organizations: Miami Railway Museum: $1,000, Miami 4 H Beef Club: $1,000, Miami Ag Society: $2,000, Miami Sports Complex: $3,500, Miami Arena: $5,000, Miami Cenotaph: $3,500 (plus $1,500 in 2020 matched by MB 150 Grant)
