LFMB report

Lou Fant Distinguished Service Award Banquet

Final Report by Beth D’Addario(Chairperson)

*Saturday March 20, 2010

*Time 11:30am – 4pm

*Donations- Beth D’Addario

*Registration-Marcus Gunter and Frank  Nevarez

*Graphic Artist- Katie Dicus

*Donations were Sorenson @$2,000.00 and Accommodating Ideas @ $1,000.00

*Bob Hilterman was the MC for this year’s event

*John Maucer was terrific and engaging  as this year’s entertainment.

* We had a problem with the FM Loop System, the interpreters receiver would not stay connected to broadcast to the other FM Loops. We reconciled the situation by just having the interpreters use the microphone. Thanks to Paul Raci’s  interpreting skills it was more of a benefit to really “hear”  John do all his different impressions and teasing of the awardees. By John’s skill as a performer it got both Deaf and Hearing to have uncontrollable laughter. It was a joy to see.
