Luncheons and Christmas Dinner
Sitting down and sharing a meal with friends is an enjoyable way to start the afternoon.
Each spring, we have a ham and meatball dinner. In the summer we have a BBQ and in the fall we celebrate Oktoberfest. Each of these meals is held at noon and our members often bring a desert. The club charges $8 per member and it’s buffet style.
At Christmas, we celebrate with a lovely turkey dinner. You get a break on the price because the club pays the majority of the cost of the ticket. If that’s not enough to catch your attention, how about the fact that after dinner, we give away a lot of door prizes. It’s a lot of fun and we hope to see you there.
