The Medina Volunteer Fire Department hosted its Annual Wild Game Dinner on Saturday at The Farm Country Club in Medina. The capacity crowd of over 400 feasted on a delicious dinner of wild game with all the sides and dessert. They were entertained by the bluegrass and gospel tunes of the Caliche Hill Band during the meal. After dinner, the Ricky Adams Band played country southern rock to get the dancing started.
The Volunteer Fire Department sponsored an extensive silent auction of items donated by local mer chants. The Department also held a large playing card gun raffle for premier firearms and ammo. The show piece of the auction was a bottle of Codigo Tequila signed by George Strait with a 45 LC stainless steel Bond Arms Derringer.
Lee Bailey, President of the Medina Volunteer Fire Department, remarked “this dinner is always fun and we have had a great turnout this year.” The dinner and dance were a popular event during the Hunters’ Weekend festivities. The proceeds from this annual dinner will help the department with operating costs as well as provide the on-going training necessary by the department.
Pipe Creek residents and first-time attendees Judy and Steven Thealbert commented “this is a great event and an awesome night. We will definitely come back next year.” The couple moved on through the crowd of guests and danced the night away.
As guests danced and socialized, others sat at the large tables visiting or finishing their meals. The crowd was mellow and seemed to be enjoying this once-a-year event. Some stood around the outdoor fire pits as others slowly ambled back to cars to return home. Guest Diane Segura said “I knew this would be a good time, my husband played at the dinner last year.”
