December Dinner Party (CORRECTION)

updated December 5, 2018

OK I have a correction to share for the dinner event on Saturday. Ed said I’m allowed one mistake per month, but I apologize for pouring confusion on this.

The cost for the dinner will be as follows. As we are a rather large group, the gratuity is already included in the price.

  • For adults: $47.15 per person, including gratuity. Payable to the restaurant
  • For seniors: $41.25 per person, including gratuity. Payable to the restaurant
  • The branch will cover the cost for drinks.

In our example, Elisha and I are planning to bring $50 cash each for the dinner and that’s all.

It is advisable to bring cash as we did the credit card thing last year and it was a bit of a process for the waitress.

Please let me know if you can make it out on Saturday evening for our annual December dinner.

Please plan to join us for an evening of delightful company, food and drinks. On the very popular holiday menu is prime rib, turkey and seafood, and comes with all the trimmings. Cost per person is for Adults $39.95 ($47.15 with gratuity) and for Seniors, wisdom does have its rewards, $34.95 plus gratuity ($41.25 per person).

Recently you may have heard us talking about out our tour of the Provincial Archives of Alberta and some very old things we discovered there. We are planning to have a copy of the Alberta Boiler Act of 1906 at the dinner party for you to look at and we are very excited to share that with you.

RSVP please if you are planning to attend as the space is limited. Donations for the Edmonton Food Bank are also welcome.
