Annual FRRL Banquet


One of our most popular social events held early each year is our awards and recognition banquet where members are acknowledged for a wide variety of reasons: Ham of the Year, Committee Service, and HF Challenge certificates will all be distributed.

All FRRL members and their friends are invited to the annual FRRL Banquet. This is our best social event of the year because we have our spouses with us for great food and fellowship. This is a great time to remember all of the activities of the club over the last year and to recognize those who helped make it happen.
