Wanted: SARC 25th Anniversary Beer Stein

This message came from a reader of our website:

Hope someone in your club can help.  I’m trying to replace a broken 25th Anniversary beer mug for a special friend.  She and her husband were past members of your association, Gerald and Anna Robertson.  Gerry passed on a few years ago, and so the mug has sentimental value.  It’s a long shot, I know.  The mugs are over 20 yrs. old, thought it may be worth a try to track one down.
Sincerely, Gail Tuskey

Editor’s note: These mugs would now be over 40 years old. If you can help Gail out, please let us know via the club contact form.
