Notes and Pictures from the second Meeting

For those of you who attended the meeting last night at SF CC, I thank you VERY MUCH.   The CC was very nice and would make a nice impression to the class.  We saw the room we would be using and were shown how it would be set up.      

We met with the manager and did some menu brainstorming.   Here’s our thoughts:   We will have grazing stations for:  Beef, carving station, chicken station and Pasta bar there will be 2 vegetables and salad (bar or Caesar).  We would end w/a dessert table and coffee, tea & Iced tea would be offered. 

Nancy, thank you for arranging the evening and for your work, thus far. 

Larry presented to us his suggestion for the letter to be sent in October requesting donations.  These would offset the price of the meal plus mailings, printing, music, decorations.   We want to TRY to make the ticket price affordable for ALL.  No question Larry spent time, trouble and thought in doing this letter.  EXCEPT for 2 MINOR changes the committee felt it was good to go.

Thank you LARRY for ALL of YOUR HARD WORK.

NOW, I am reminding you about the July 23rd at 6:30 PM meeting at Indian Valley CC which Suzanne Brook has set up for us.   We will again meet the mgr. go over the menu, and see the room.

We will also be able to have drinks and a light meal during this time.   How this was worked this time, Nancy put the total on her account and we each marked down the price of what we ate/drank including tax & tip and then gave this to Nancy.   Please have some small bills so we don’t need change.  THANKS. 

This will give us an idea of the quality of food and presentation and ALSO the type attitude of the staff and their service.   All of which is VERY IMPORTANT.

After this meeting, 7/23, I would like to have a meeting in early August to discuss both places and give one our answer.  This way all should be very fresh in our minds for us to make a clear decision. 

If someone would like to volunteer to have the next meeting, this would be great.   Joe Carbo gave me a CD demo for a band, One2Many. I would like to play this CD that evening.   Their price for:  6 piece ensemble consisting of 2 female & 2 male vocalists with guitars, keyboard, bass & drums is $725 for 4 hrs with $150 for each additional hr. Usually clubs will provide some type of meal for the band and WE WILL NEED THIS COST as well  NANCY & SUZANNE.  

So FAR COMMITTEE “A JOB WELL DONE”   see you 7/23.

OH------------------PLEASE be sure to tell me yes OR no for the meeting as they CC wants to set the tables for us.   Thanks.   ss
