Over 200 people attended the annual Der Dutchman cruise-in banquet on Thursday evening.
The banquet is the restaurant's way to says thanks to everyone that participated in the cruise-in throughout the summer. It also gives everyone a chance to get together one more time before the cars are put away and the season officially comes to an end.
Wayne Nisly, cruise-in manager, was the master of ceremonies for the evening.
Everyone that brought a car to at least one cruise-in received a nice plaque from Wayne and the restaurant in appreciation for reaching the attendance goal of 200 cars. That occurred on September 20th when the cruise-in registered 253 vehicles! It was quite an evening.
The evening came to close with the cruisers presenting Wayne, his wife, Luella, and Victor, assistant manager at the restaurant, gifts in appreciation for all the work they did to make each cruise-in a success.
The Der Dutchman cruise-in grew by leaps and bounds this year. It will be a tall order to top that success going forward. Wayne, always thinking big, has set a goal of 300 cars for next year. There's also discussion of having one Saturday morning coffee and donuts cruise-in. 2019 is already shaping up to be another great season. Can't wait....

Sorry Nance and I had to miss the banquet, I signed up for it, but the Kenton Ridge homecoming game was on Thursday Night Lights on Fox 45.
My Camaro and my Mustang were in the parade, and the senior in my Camaro was voted King.
Then both cars were in the Graham homecoming on Friday night in the rain.
We will see everyone next year.
Hi Ron, That sounds like a good reason for missing the banquet. Look forward to seeing you and Nance next season.
