Mark your calendars for this special evening! Join us at 5:30 pm for an appetizer of elephant garlic mousse with grilled breads. As always, the cash bar will be available while we mingle and celebrate.
We will start our meal with a spinach salad with pecans and mandarin oranges with rolls. Meal choices include roasted chicken with garlic cream sauce, cedar planked salmon with hollandaise sauce, or beef medallions with herbed espagnol. These entrees will be served with baked potatoes and grilled asparagus. A cobb salad with grilled chicken, avocados, roasted squash, toasted pecans, and a creamy corn & poblano dressing will also be available. Our meal will finish with chocolate cake. Since we are having a special meal, the cost is $25.
We need all RSVP's by Thursday, December 5th.
After our meal, we will enjoy a white elephant gift exchange that promises to leave us with great memories. For the white elephant gift exchange, please bring an item from your home you no longer want that has a value of $15 or less. It's time to turn your trash into someone else's treasure!
