The annual Vardar Girls Banquet was held in early November to once again pay tribute to the many accomplishments of our female athletes and to individually recognize and honor the graduating seniors from our club.
The event began with the traditional parade of seniors accompanied by the youngest members of Vardar, our U9 girls. The evening then proceeded with a welcome from Director of Coaching Morris Lupenec, dinner, team introductions from each coach, and a final acknowledgment of the senior class. Each Vardar girl received a banquet program and a Vardar travel pillow while the seniors also received a fleece blanket to remember their years with the club.
During the evening, attendees could watch a slideshow that featured individual pictures of every Vardar player or peruse the poster boards that every team provided showcasing their special players. A table displaying senior photos and banners representing the colleges they have committed to for next year was also available for people to observe.
Finally, a raffle of various gift baskets was held to help offset costs of the banquet which is funded by ticket sales, sponsorship donations and raffle earnings.
The 15th Annual Vardar Girls Banquet is scheduled for November 3, 2014 at the San Marino Hall in Troy. All female Vardar alumnae are invited to attend. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
