Sprng Banquet NEW DATE

Post by don kuehn » Fri Apr 05, 2019 1:37 pm

Because of several objections to the Mothers Day date, the Legion was able to free up another reservation day. Therefore, the banquet date and time has been moved: THE NEW DATE AND TIME IS---FRIDAY, MAY 10. Cocktail hour will commence at 6:00 pm, with dinner service beginning around 6:45 pm. The rest of the arrangements and costs remain the same. Hopefully, this will satisfy those were not happy with the previous date and time. See you there!

Full updated details ................

Our annual spring banquet this year will be held on Friday, May 10. It will be at the Canadian Legion Branch 229, 110 Metcalfe Street, Elora, Ontario, and cocktails will be available from 6:00 pm with dinner commencing around 6:45 or so. Their phone number (fyi) is 519-846-9611. The banquet will be catered by the Legion's Women's Volunteer Committee, and it will be buffet style. The menu is as follows; various juices (tomato, apple, etc.), Roast Beef with horseradish, Turkey with dressing and cranberry, mashed potatoes (and gravy), cole slaw, mixed vegetables, pickles, and rolls. Dessert will consist of a medley of Mennonite pies (with ice cream for those who wish to indulge), coffee and tea. [The volunteer ladies do not have any provisions for a vegetarian main course, but those who wish to bring one will be able to warm it in the legion's kitchen.] There will also be three bottles of wine at each table (which will have seating for 8 at each table) - one white and two red.

The cost per person for this banquet will be - $40.00 for members and guests, $30.00 for spouses of members (including members who are wives of club members), and $30.00 for youths/ students.

If anyone has any suggestions for a guest speaker (or two), please don't hesitate to contact me.

Let me know how many reservations you would like, I need the numbers for the planning. Preferably by email: dqndrayton@cyg.net (please do not expect a response). The office will deduct the price from your YSA account mid-June. Please do not send checks for the banquet, but make sure your YSA account is in order during June.

For those who do not have reservations, a very limited number of extra spaces will be available, but the cost will be $45.00 per person for all persons, payable at the door. Hope to see y'all there.
