Our December meeting is the annual banquet and Christmas dinner, and this year’s event promises to be
another wonderful night! Charlie Rhoads volunteered to take the lead in organizing our holiday celebration and meeting, and everything is coming together nicely.
The dinner will be held at the Cedar Run Lodge at 503 Eleanor Parkway in Newark. (Eleanor Parkway is off Roberts Avenue which is west off North Cedar Street.) Dave Miller will be providing an Amish buffet that includes roast beef, chicken, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken noodles, salad with dressing, and a choice of 3 different pies for dessert. The cost is $15 per plate. Please arrive by 6:00, and dinner will be served by 6:15.
Ticket prices cover only the cost of dinner, without overhead. Charlie has generously donated the rental fee for the hall and other expenses.
The chapter invited the Civil Air Patrol to participate and is sponsoring six cadets. Members may also sponsor additional cadets. To do so contact Charlie or Larry.
This year we’ll abbreviate the ceremonies and awards so the evening isn’t as long, and will limit door prizes.
The guest speaker will be Jeff Gill, area newsman and Pastor of Central Christian Church.
Please attend our meeting Tuesday evening (19th) or contact Charlie Rhoads to volunteer or Treasurer Larry Arnold to pay for your reservation. We need a head count as soon as possible.
