Sep 18 2018

Award recipients, club members, and their friends and family celebrated another fun and exciting show season at our 2017-2018 Year-End Award Banquet. The luncheon was held on Sunday, August 19that Runyon’s Restaurant in Coral Springs, FL.

Along with enjoying the pleasure of good company and exquisite food, PHA members came together to commemorate the remarkable achievements of our talented award recipients, induct a new board of directors, and even compete for a raffle prize or two. (Needless to say, we saw a lot of happy faces in the crowd! Check out the “Gallery” page for pictures of the event.)
