The Grand Gala of 2019!

The MBC Gala of 2019 was a great success!  The amount raised was the grandest in well over a century! What a way to go into our 150th year.  Thank you to all who contributed, donated, worked, coordinated and most of all, came to this wonderful event! With out you MBC couldn't have made this happen.

Several announcements also occurred at the Gala, including the new name for the youth endowment fund. This fund will now officially be called the The MBC Miriam Baer Youth Endowment Fund. Also, the erg/weight room will be named The Baer Den. Both in honor of our recently passed coach, Miriam Baer. Recognition ceremonies will be held later this spring/summer.

Thank you once again!  May the remainder of the year be filled with joy and happiness.  From everyone at MBC, thank you!
