Our Holiday Party at Palmbrook Country Club again this year. Tickets are $26. There will be games, prizes, a 50/50 raffle, Santa for a photo. Bluesman Mike's band will entertain us. He plays all kinds of music and really likes to keep things moving on the dance floor. We will be collecting donations for the band at the meet ups between now and the party. This way we can keep the price of the ticket down and just put in a couple bucks now instead of in December when our budgets get tight. Dress code for the event is holiday wear....no jeans! Cocktail Hour from 5:30 - 6:30 pm with a cash bar Dinner at 6:30 pm; Menu: Garden Salad, choice of Prime Rib, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Grilled Salmon, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans w/sun-dried tomatoes, dinner rolls, dessert, coffee and tea. The tax and gratuity is included in the $26 cost of the ticket. Please include your entree choice when you RSVP. As always, guests of members are welcome.
Instead of a White Elephant Gift Exchange, we will have a toy drive instead. We haven't done anything charitable this year and since we have so many people coming, it would take a long time to do the gift exchange. Just bring an unwrapped toy/book/game and it won't matter what age because they all need something. They will be donated to the National Guard Family Support Group. Some of these families are really affected when their spouse is deployed. Their take home pay is usually far less than the job where they worked before. Some have had foreclosures, can't pay their utility bills, or afford fuel or daycare when they have to work The children would really appreciate these toys.
