Fifty years of Family, Friendship and Tradition was celebrated with a tribute to our founding members and original charter members on Friday night June 27, 2008.  Kurtis Loy served as emcee.  Our club begin as an idea by Dottie Miller and the vision of ten couples with incorporation taking place in 1958.  Four of our original founding member families were represented at the dinner:  Mr. Bill Daugherty, Mrs. Edythe McNally, Mrs. Dottie Miller and Mr. & Mrs. George & Josie Nettels.  In addition to the founders, active charter members were also recognized for their years of affiliation with Crestwood.  Those attending were Jeanne Benage, Joyce Cumiskey, Joe Keller, Joan Miller, Fred Mitchelson, Mary Pogson, Yvonne Robertson and Don Widner.

Numerous past presidents of Crestwood were also present and recognized for their service to the club. Crestwood's first PGA golf professional, Pete Reyburn and wife Pat traveled from Florida to take part in the celebration.  Todd Casey, current PGA Golf Professional and Club Manager, was given a standing ovation as he was presented a plaque honoring him for his unrelenting dedication and service for the past 20 years.

Theresa Swink and Debbie Hawley unveiled a commemorative portrait of our ten founding members that will hang in the entry hall.  The following dedication toast was delivered by Kurtis Loy:  


"To our founders . . 50 years . . . from 1958 to 2008 nearly one-quarter the age of our country.  The farmland you purchased has become so well groomed and improved that Crestwood is well known as the diamond not in the rough, but in the four-state area.  We have all this because of your vision.  I often wonder if gin or wine played any part of our destiny.  All of this we have because of you.  This is ours because of you.  From an idea in 1958 to this marvelous Country Club we enjoy today.  Your vision and willingness is carried forward today by all of us that now share your dreams.  You are the foundation of Crestwood, may the most you wish for be the least you get.  Thanks for the memories.  Thanks for everything."
