Dinner Meetings
Dinner Meetings
Our dinner meetings, the second Wednesday of each month, are a fun time to socialize with new and old friends.  A lively happy hour from 6-7 is followed by dinner from 7-8.  Open seating at tables for 8 allows for extended conversations.  From 8 – 9 we have announcements on coming events and special programs. Happy hour is always open, however reservations for the catered dinner must be made by the Sunday before the meeting.  Your guests are always welcomed to any club function.
