Hello everyone, your board has firmed up this year’s Christmas Party and its cost.
The party will be at the Oregon Gardens, starting at 6pm, on Friday, November 30th. Now all that is left is for you to sign up and come have a great time.
Cost this year is $10 per member which includes an 18% gratuity. The total price is $30 but in recognition of all of your hard work and participation in chapter events this year, the chapter is picking up $20 of that for members. Guests will be required to pay the full price of $30. It is preferred that you pay no later than the November meeting, but if you can’t make it, you can pay at the door the night of the party.
Party details are:
- Veggy Trays Appetizer
- Garden Salad
- St Louis Style Ribs “Shortribs” wih an apricot burbon sauce
- BBQ Beef Brisket
- Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- Ranch Style Beans
- Seasonal Veggies
- Assorted Deserts (apple caramel, chocolate, berry)
- No Host Bar
Chinese Auction (Raffle style drawings) Everyone will receive one raffle ticket upon entry to the party and additional tickets will be for sale with proceeds going to the chapter’s treasury.
“HOG” Gift Exchange (White Elephant)
50/50 drawings (both halves will be given away)
Open lounge after the party
Special room rate of $69.00 for those who wish to stay the night. This price includes all-you-can eat breakfast buffet and garden tickets the following day.
Suggested gift price for the “HOG” Gift Exchange is $10.00 & participation is optional. If you want to participate, bring a gift. If not, just set back and enjoy watching people steal each other’s gifts. Th Chinese Auction also needs gifts and these are usually of a hiher qality than the gift exchange. Examples of last years auction items were gift certificates, bottles of wine, etc.
A sign-up sheet was passed around at the October 16th meeting and will be again passed around again at the November 13th meeting. If you can’t make it to either meeting, you can reply to this email with your name and the name of any guest and I will add you to the list.
November 13th is the deadline for sign-up as we need to give the Oregon Gardens a firm number of attendees the next day.
