Photos Page Back Up!

A big thanks to our WordPress expert, Dan Troup for getting the Photos page of the ALCA website back up.  He also added a sub-menu to the Photo tab on the top menu so you can jump directly to a particular nights photos (instead of scrolling down).

Thanks Dan!

Year End Awards Banquet – October 29, 2016

Hi Everyone!

Wanted to remind all of you of our upcoming party/dinner/meeting next week.   We will be gathering in our own room at Comensoli’s in downtown Kalamazoo.  We start with a cocktail hour with fleet provided appetizers, then move to dinner (family style salad also provided by fleet), then will have our annual officer elections/trophy awards.  Please RSVP to Julie at with your dinner choice.  The attached flyer will give you details of the menu.  Also, I will be finding out what the weekly special is going to be very soon, so will send an update out with the specifics of that dish.  I’m so looking forward to it, it’s going to be a great time!

Summer Series Week 9 – August 30, 2016

Getting down to the wire here.  Only two weeks left – IF mother nature is kind to us!  Tuesday we’re looking at 83 degrees, party sunny, with a 40-60% chance of thunderstorms and WSW winds of 5 mph.  Can you dig it?  (LOL)
Anyway, we are planning to meet at Brewsters – don’t have the big room for tomorrow night, but have been assured that we will have space in the main dining room.
Year – end party is scheduled for Saturday Oct 29th.
