Our anual Club holiday party will be on Sunday December 9th, and will again be hosted at club member Taylor’s  house in Deerfield.

This is a great chance to kick back and visit with MINI friends in a nice casual setting.

WRAPUP:  We had a  big crowd this year.. Lots of good food, lots of good company, and really great raffle give-a-ways.  A huge thanks to Taylor for hosting our party,  MINIUSA for helping our club out with some fantastic gifts, and also a big thanks to Francis and Paul for helping out!!
