 We are planning to have our 2nd annual Community Gala to help in the purchase of more round tables and chairs for the Community Building.  We are again asking for individuals to hostess a table by inviting 7 guests to be a guest of the hostess or a  paying guest  (the hostess may sell tickets @ $25 or a donation on her own).  Tickets may also be purchased from Jackie or Pat.  We also ask the hostess to furnish the tableware.  We will be having a raffle table, door prizes, and band for entertainment.   Our doors will open at 5:00-6:30 for a social hour and viewing of the tables with our dinner at 6:30.

Each table may have a theme such as: a holiday (Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving), or any season, elegant theme, etc.

Thank you for participating by being a hostess for a table for the dinner.  The dinner will be held at the Community Building on the upper level.  All foods and drinks will be served from the upper level.

All monies will go toward purchasing round tables & chairs.

Please contact Jackie Hennessy (476-3174) or Pat Hansen (476-2573) if you would hostess a table for 8 including yourself.  Two people, a club, or a group may hostess a table.
