Football Banquet at Williams Golf & Country Club

Last Sunday (November 13) was the football banquet.  We got ready  a little early so we took some family pictures while waiting for the time for us to go to the venue of the said event.  I love it when my men are all dressed up.  They don't really dressed up often so it's fun to see them  all spiffy and prim.  
The event was held at  Williams Golf and Country Club  in Marland Heights Weirton, WV.   Driving to the place is a real treat,  the golf  course is  beautiful.  
Williams Golf & Country Club is located in the heart of Weirton, West Virginia.  It is established in 1932, the club features an 18-hole, par 72 golf course and a clubhouse renowned for its banquet and dining facilities. 
Williams  Golf and Country Club  is rated in the top ten of West Virginia’s best golf courses. It  is beautiful and well maintained.  Its layout offers challenge for players at every level. 
According to their website, over the years Williams has been the site of three West Virginia Open tournaments and numerous Tri-State, PGA and other events.
It was a really good way of ending the football season, for family and friends to get together and have some good conversation while enjoying delicious food.
My husband worked on this business establishments 30 years ago when he was a teenager and he said that almost everything is still the same inside the reception hall.  He said that there was this rich guy  who was  a frequent client at the club and every Christmas he would give a dollar to someone.  At one time my husband  got the lucky dollar and his friends were teasing him about that.  I told him that he should have kept the dollar as a souvenir lol.
The place looks  old but still well maintained.  The high ceiling is  beautiful but you can tell that  it is really old.
All the players sat in one long table.    It gave all of the the chance to talk to each other before they part ways.  The Jr. Dons football is consist of two catholic schools, St. Joseph and St. Paul.
The Banquet hall has a stunning view of the Ohio river.
While waiting for the program to start, we were able to walk around and take pictures.
I love the furniture and paintings that they have.  You can tell they're old but still beautiful.
It is awesome to see our kids socialize with their friends even though they don't go to the same school but they are united through sports.
Most of these kids will go to the same catholic  high school which is Madonna.
Through out the  football season, I have meet some  good people and became friends  with a few of them.
I hope that next football season will be as  fun as this year.  They did not win a game bu they learned a lot and they have fun so that's what mattered the most.  
The family that I got closer with won't be doing the next season.  I am going to miss them.
I applaud  the parents who  put together this event.  They have done a  wonderful job in preparing everything.  The program and the  names with  meals are set upon  the entrance so we just  picked ours.  We were the first ones there so we wondered why they were two sets of our name, it must have been a mistake.  

There was an appetizer served before the main course.  They served  salad and  fresh baked bread.   My daughter and I had salmon hollandaise and my husband had steak.  Our son had chicken.
Dessert was also served after wards.
The warding ceremony  was done after we ate.
On our way home, we stopped at one  part of the road  and took some pictures.
It was one wonderful  event that we all enjoyed.  Looking forward to a new season next year.
I was wearing an earth toned dress so the lip locked stain "shae" was a perfect lippie!  It contains primer stain, and kip gloss ion one.  I love that it lasts even after  I ate and the shade really compliment my skin tone.  
 This month's  Beauty Box 5 has the  theme "It's too cold for a naked face".  It has a deep conditioning hair mask that I truly loved, I used it three times.  The hair mask  repairs damage and breakage to your hair.  I love love love the smell of it.  It also has a  pack of make up remover  cleansing towellets.  Although I don't use make up, it is  great to have it in my purse especially when we go somewhere and I want to refresh my face.  It is unfortunate that the shadow trio  was  damaged during the transit.  The angle brush as a great addition too.  
Overall, it was a really great event.  We had fun and our bellies were full!
