For something different this year, I have reserved 20 spots for a buffet on Christmas day at The Gort Restaurant.
I am told the table comfortably sits 20.
Price is $25.95 per person.
The buffet consists of:
• Turkey and Sage dressing
• Ham and meatballs
• Chicken and perogies
• Pastas, salads and vegies
• Fruit tray
• Desserts & pastries
• Coffee or tea and more...
(When reservations were made, which was back in October, they thought the first sitting would be 3:30pm. They made the Christmas dinner a little earlier according to the internet ad. I called and they said an error was made, the sittings are 3:30 & 6pm. Even so I will be going for 3pm. Do what is best for you - 3 or 3:30pm.)
We will be going to the earlier sitting which is at 3:30pm.
NOTE: They take debit, cash, Visa, MasterCard, or American Express for payment.
***We will pile the gifts together and then when all are there hand them out.
On top of that, this year we will be doing a Secret Santa gift exchange that day.
What we will do is set the limit to $25 for the gift exchange.
Each person that wants to participate would fill out a ballet that will ask you what 3 things you would like to receive that could be purchased within the limit amount.
Then I will gather the ballots together and we will pick from a hat one of the ballots secretly.
Then you will act as Secret Santa for the members ballot you picked, choosing off the list that the member wrote ahead of time. Their "Things I would like for Christmas" list.
This way each person will get something they would like and it will still be a bit of a surprise to see what is picked for you.
We will then dispurse info of who's gift you will buy for the Secret Santa. If you don't want to participate in the gift exchange that is fine.
*** If you cannot go, it is important you take yourself off as soon as possible, so someone else can go, since reservations are a must for this meet up.
No $2 Meet Up fee
>>>*I cannot increase this anymore - all spots filled.*<<<
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL !!!
SEE YOU IN 2014 FOR A NEW MEET UP SCHEDULE.
