A Message from the Common Table
November 23, 2014
I just wrote to you just a few weeks ago and now it is time again. The Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings are not even in the oven yet, but it is time to remind all of you that the Holiday Dinner is coming soon. December 11, 2014 at 6:30 PM to be exact. Many of us plan to be there before 6:00, so come early if you can. We will start with nice hot beverages and conversation.
I am working with Chef Steve for our dinner fair. For the last several years Chef Tom Kok prepared our dinner and everyone enjoyed every last bite. Most of us know, but for those who do not, Chef Tom was diagnosed with brain cancer just a few weeks after our dinner last year. He passed away this past May. Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church has a new chef. His name is Steve Sorter. He is a graduate of Johnson and Wales, the premier chef training school. He is planning to impress us with a great meal.
Now we need you to come! We already have several that have reserved and paid for the event. We are going to charge the same price as the last several years, only $15.00 per person! That is a bargain for what you are going to get. We are a little late this year in getting you to signup for reservations. You can go ahead and pay, much appreciated, but if you just get a reservation in, you can pay at the event. If you reserve, you must pay even if you do not get to come. We need to know how many for Chef Steve to prepare for and the church will bill us for that amount. I hope you understand, so please make your reservations.
Please RSVP to me: Galen Bolin, 1114 Roanoke Ave., Charlotte, NC 28205. My phone numbers are 704 536-5171 (home) and 704 451-2654 (cell). E-mail is ok: write to firstname.lastname@example.org. Richard K. and I will account for all the reservations.
I have been collecting presents for all, we will probably have a very different and special present this year. I will bring my extensive Christmas and Holiday music collection and our own Dr. Paul Reiss will be selecting what to play. Maybe he will take requests. We will also have the yule log burning on the big screen.
See you this December 11, 2014 for our Holiday Party.
I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving and I will see you soon.
