On April 8, 2018, Ankokas held its 54th Annual Charter Luncheon at the Ramblewood Country Club. The luncheon celebrates the anniversary of the founding of Ankokas and brings together all members for a good time of conversation and food. President Kathy Petters announced several club events coming up in the next few months, so be sure to check the Calendar often. A Thank You plaque was presented to club member and sponsor Tom Amendola for his support of Ankokas. The highlight of the day was the presentation of the Frank Hankins Memorial award, presented to the club member who has stood out for their work and support of Ankokas. This year, Diana Antinucci was honored for her work as editor of your Smoke Signals newsletter, she creates the artwork for your website, club photography, and fresh baked cookies at the meetings.

Pictures and audio of our pipe organ tour now posted


Pictures of our tour of the Atlantic City Convention Hall Pipe Organ have now been posted Atlantic City Pipe Organ Tour of the Past Ankokas Events gallery. An audio clip recorded from the free concert after our tour is now posted on our BLOG page. If you missed the tour, you missed a spectacular tour. Every Wednesday at 10:00 am, Boardwalk Hall offers a tour of the building and inside the chambers where the pipes are located. You are actually walking through the organ, not just looking at it. After the tour is a concert that shows just how grand the pipe organ can sound. And it's all free. Yes, FREE, no charge. You really need to take the kids and grand kids to see this. Don't delay.
