Club banquet a success

Last Friday several Clackamas Community College clubs came together at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Clackamas to celebrate each other and award the club members of the month.

“The club’s banquet is a time for all the clubs to get together and to celebrate all of their activities throughout the year, and to provide an environment of fellowship and community and celebration,” said Associated Student Government President Brent Finkbeiner

And celebrate they did.

Club members were served a delightful meal complete with bread, salad, a large plate of spaghetti and cherry chocolate pistachio ice cream to top it all off.  It was a great time with lots of conversation.

Before the meal ended, Finkbeiner announced several club member of the year awards.  Jesse Staub received the member of the year award from Northwest Collegiate Ministries.  Nursing Students Without Borders gave Faith Wambach the member of the year award.  Olivia Newbold was honored by the Student Nurses’ Association as member of the year.  Nathaniel Flying Owl received the member of the year award from the Writers’ Club.  Phi Theta Kappa honored Alexis Alcala with the member of the year award.  And last but not least, Andrea Garcia De Alba was given the member of the year award by the Associated Student Government.

The ASG president was pleased with the results of the banquet.  Finkbeiner said, “This year was an awesome turnout, I heard it was a lot more than last year, so hopefully we can keep that momentum going, and have an even bigger one next year and over all get more students involved in the college and the community.”banquet
