Our annual “Rotary Home Cooking” series, a member-hosted set of dinners/social events, is ready to roll out from March through June. And, we have our first two events already spoken for.
• Maggie and Murray Forth will host a roast beef dinner at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 16, at their East Greenbush residence. Seating, as it is for all such events, is limited. Please contact the Forths ASAP if you would like to attend. First-come, first-serfved.
• Dean and Doris Calamaras will host a Hungarian dinner at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 13, with a Hungarian Beef, Miskolcz style, entree and all the trimmings. (If you can’t imagine what they are, the Calamarases will provide details closer to the time for reservations to be made. We guarantee they’ll be tasty!) Contact Dean or Doris ASAP to make your reservation.
For those of you unfamiliar with the “Rotary Home Cooking” series details, here are the essentials:
Members volunteer to host and create themed dinners with a limited number of seats available. The hosts supply the food and beverages as their contribution, and they set the price per-person, using a restaurant approximation (usually in the $25 to $35 range). All money raised by attendees’ donations goes to the club’s general treasury to support our many community service efforts.
We now are looking for hosts for May, and June, with dates to be selected by the hosts. We can, of course, have more than one event per month which means we can take more in March and April. If you’re interested, please contact Bill Dowd or Andy Leyhane ASAP.
In the past, themes have spanned a wide range, from “A Greek Evening” to “A Plaza Hotel Recreation” to “Surf & Turf” to “A Beer & Wine Tasting” to “A Taste of New Orleans” to “A Rotary Cocktail Party” to “A French Bistro Event” and more.
