The Detroit Guardsmen Host a New Year’s Eve Celebration at The Roostertail on the Detroit River.

The Detroit Chapter of The National Association of Guardsmen hosted their annual New Year’s Eve Celebration at The Roostertail, a historic meeting and entertainment venue – the premiere host of the early Motown scene.

The black tie event’s entertainment was provided by the local Detroit band Notorious that played a mixture of old standards and modern hits.

Several Toledoans have a long-time connection with the Detroit Guardsman. Paul Hubbard, who was in charge of this year’s entertainment, is both a past national chairman and a past Detroit chapter president. Ron Thompson, a long-time Toledo area industrialist, is also a Detroit Guardsman.

This year’s dinner menu included steak filet mignon and baked chicken breast with vegetables and mashed potatoes. However, from the moment they entered, guests were offered a wide range of hors d’eouvres, including meatballs in barbecue sauce, scallops wrapped in bacon, grilled chicken tenders in honey sauce, among other items, along with champagne. After the main course, a dessert buffet table with pies, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies and numerous other sweet delectable were available.

And the band played on … without interruption, for the duration of the evening and well into the new decade.
