Mark your calendars now for the second installment of the Annual Gobble Till You Wobble event held at Blair?s Condo on Saturday November, 20, 2010. The Jaycees will have a Thanksgiving potluck style dinner / BYOB where the host (Chapter) will provide the turkey and members are asked to bring their favorite complimentary dish from their own family thanksgivings. Members will RSVP through Meetup/Facebook to indicate what side dish they are bringing to help guard against multiple dishes of the same food. Please bring your dish as prepared as possible for dinner. Cocktail hour will begin at 6:00 and dinner will be served at 7:00 pm.
NEW THIS YEAR!!!: The Jaycees will be adopting a local family in need of assistance in providing his or her family with a Thanksgiving meal. Members are asked to bring a pot luck dish and another set of unused raw ingredients for their dish and the recipe on an index card. Staple food items such as milk, butter, salt, pepper, flour, etc., along with the turkey will be provided by the chapter. The recipe and the ingredients will then be delivered to a needy family in Alexandria that does not have funds to provide a Thanksgiving dinner for his/her family. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give Blair a call or email at [address removed] We will collect the food at the event on Saturday and the food will be delivered to the family on the following Tuesday.
AND WHAT ABOUT FOOTBALL?!?! If members would like to come over to watch football earlier?maybe play a bit of football outdoors between games are more than welcome to come over early. They are asked to make arrangements with the host to ensure that their side dish can be prepared on-site. Early arrivers should bring dish as prepared as possible so just to cook or heat their dish before dinner. Cocktail hour will begin at 6:00 and dinner will be served at 7:00 pm.
