The Midstate Quail and Dove Banquet was attended by the largest number of people in the club’s history. The Friday night banquet included a prime rib meal, door prizes and live and silent auctions.
The Newberry County Jaycees worked the bar at the event to raise money for the many projects they conduct in the community.
