California Citrus Mutual celebrated 39 years as "the voice of the citrus grower" by hosting an annual meeting complete with members of "The Rat Pack."

The annual gathering of the citrus trade association typically features dinner, evening entertainment, and introduction of the board of directors.

This year's entertainment featured the likenesses of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Marilyn Monroe, who together form "The Rat Pack Group." One of the evening highlights was when "Marilyn" sang "Happy Birthday" to past-chairman Kevin Severns.

CCM represents about 2,500 citrus growers, who comprise about 75 percent of the state's $3.3 billion commercial citrus industry.
