Dinner to be tribute to Sikeston businessman

Thursday, November 1, 2001

A longtime Sikeston area businessman who died last year will be honored at a tribute dinner at the Sikeston Ramada Inn Nov. 8.

Art Hobbs was a partner at Spitzmiller Hobbs & Bridges for 35 years and volunteered in many Sikeston organizations, including Ducks Unlimited, the Jaycees, the Lions Club and the South East chapter of CPAs.

Ducks Unlimited will dedicate this year's annual sponsors dinner to the memory of one of its own longtime volunteers. The dinner will be a seafood buffet, and there will be lots of giveaways, raffles, games and an auction. The proceeds from the dinner will go to a wetlands conservation project in Hobbs' name.

Cocktails will be at 6 p.m., the buffet at 7:30, and the auction will begin at 8:30 p.m. For information and tickets, call (573) 472-3614.
