The scheduled speaker has cancelled, but we’re still going to sit down to a hearty dinner this Thursday at Quigley’s.
East Greenbush Town Supervisor Jack Conway just informed us he has a scheduling conflict for this week. He hopes to visit at a later date. Dick Drumm is working to secure a replacement program for Thursday.
Meanwhile, if you have not yet emailed Debbie Brown at email@example.com with your dinner reservation, tonight (Tuesday) is the deadline for doing so.
We hope to see you at Quigley’s at 6:15 for Chicken Parmesan with an antipasto salad, chef’s choice of side dishes, bread, dessert, and beverages. And, as always, the cash bar is open all evening.
Here’s a different sort of District Convention — a chance to enjoy a luxury resort without a long drive to get there and get home. Reservations now are being taken, so sign up while there is room. And, if you want to get more details about the Essex Culinary Resort & Spa just click here.
Our umpteenth annual “Holiday Party & Themed Basket Silent Auction” is nearly upon us, set for this coming Thursday, December 20, at Quigley’s.
While the organizers are putting the final touches on the gala, all you have to do is be sure you have RSVP’d to Debbie Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than this coming Monday, December 17.
As always, guests are welcome. As always, however, we need to have an accurate headcount by the deadline, so please … !
The price is just $25 per person, which covers a holiday spread of two entrees — roast beef and/or eggplant Parmesan — and chef’s choice of veggie side dishes, mashed potatoes, breads, salad, a dessert selection, and a surprise appetizer. PLUS, a self-serve bar will be stocked with wine, beer, and sodas. (Mixed drinks will be available at the main cash bar.)
In addition to socializing, dining, and fun, you can do some Christmas shopping throughout the evening from an assortment of themed gift baskets SRC members will be bringing for the silent auction. All proceeds will go to the club treasury to help support our may public service projects.
So, please don’t forget to create and bring your themed baskets, and establish a minimum starter bid to get things rolling. If you’re stumped as to possible themes, just click here for suggestions. (Two of them appear here.)
P.S. If you haven’t attended a dinner meeting lately, this is an opportunity to see the ongoing renovation project Murray Forth has been spearheading for our meeting room at Quigley’s.
Don’t forget to RSVP by Monday, and we’ll see you at 6 p.m. Thursday at Quigley’s!
That’s the topic for this Thursday’s 6 p.m. dinner meeting program at Quigley’s. The speaker will be Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association and a board member of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Given the ongoing debate over guns, gun rights, gun legislation, etc., this promises to be a lively and informative session. However, we need to know how many people plan to attend so we have sufficient food and seating. If you haven’t signed up, please do so by emailing dinner coordinator Debbie Brown at email@example.com no later than Tuesday, and as always feel free to invite a guest. Just let her know.
The menu will feature Quigley’s popular lasagna, antipasto salad, chef’s selection of sides, Italian bread, dessert, and beverages. Plus, the cash bar is available as always. Members already signed up:
