New Venue for and Old and Well Loved Event

.

Mary Liz Curtin Stephen Scannel have always been gracious hosts for our Winter Pot Luck Dinner. Over the years it has been held in their wonderful shop Leon and Lulu but this year we moved next door to their newest venture, the Clawson Theater and what a great venue to hold not just our event, but any kind of indoor event, really. Be sure to stop in when in the area.

.

.

We had about 50 people this year, a good sign that we are ready for spring and the advent of the driving season. Be sure to look for an announcement soon about the 2017 Spring Tour, entering its 25th year!

SUNDAY DECEMBER 11th, 2016

THE FOREST LAKE COUNTRY CLUB

1401 Club Drive Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302

Forest Lake Country Club is located just off of Square Lake Road, West of Telegraph. The party starts at 3 pm for appetizers, cash bar and socializing. Dinner will be served at 4pm and is a station buffet style with a very nice variety. The actual menu will be posted here soon, but last year we had a fabulous salad bar, prime rib, salmon, and a hot station risotto bar with condiments that you could add to your risotto like spinach and several cheeses.
 .
There is a charge of $60.00 each this year and is well worth the price.  The setting is beautiful, the view over the lake at sunset was peaceful and relaxing,  NO work for anyone in the club, just arrive and enjoy.

Please CLICK HERE to RSVP to Barb Skirmants
