Palmdale Rotary Hosts 8th Annual Oktoberfest
On a beautiful late summer afternoon, the Rotary Club of Palmdale hosted its 8th Annual Oktoberfest at Hacienda Lane Ranch in Palmdale.  Over 130 guests attended the event and enjoyed the food, drink, music, fun, and raffles.  Frances Lane once again hosted the Oktoberfest at her beautiful ranch style home. 
Besides local friends and neighbours of Palmdale Rotary Members, Rotarians from Lancaster, Rosamond and Santa Clarita joined in on the Festivities.  Our District 5300 Governor, Raghada Khoury, attended as was amazed at the beautiful setting and weather.  Entertainment was provided by Anton Schnitzel and the Merry Makers.  All the traditional polka songs and Oktoberfest music was enjoyed as well as a stirring rendition of the Chicken Dance and the Macarena.
Food included roast pork, potato salad, sauerkraut, red cabbage, brats and of course German Chocolate Cake for dessert. Several German Beers were available as well as wine, soft drinks, water and coffee.
Barbara Frazier’s Lancaster High School Interact Club provided additional help by serving lunch, selling raffle tickets and distributing raffle baskets to the winning ticket holders.  It was a fabulous afternoon of food, drink and fun.  The pictures tell the whole story.
