Nineteenth Annual Auction and Potluck Dinner
Wednesday, May 3th, 2017 at 5:30 PM Sam Cox Building at Glen Otto Park, Troutdale
The May meeting is as usual on the first Wednesday but the rest of the details are not usual! This is a fun night to socialize. It will feature the annual chapter auction and a great potluck dinner. The doors open at 5:30 (earlier than our other meetings) with the silent auction which runs till 7:30. Dinner will start at 6:00, finishing with dessert by 6:45. The live auction starts at 7:15. The evening usually wraps up about 8:30 to 8:45.
People are welcome to come for the oral auction but don’t miss out on the dinner. We have a lot of talented cooks in our chapter providing salads, main dishes, and side dishes and this will culminate with the famous Robert Wisher desserts. Of course the chapter will provide coffee, water, and soft drinks. There will be no charge for dinner, however we do encourage donations as this event is a fundraiser.
We need all dinner participants to fill in and submit the following form in order to let us know how much beverages and desserts will be needed. - Or call Leslie Hydorn at 503-255-0600 or email at LeslieHydorn@gmail.com . Please provide the form or contact Leslie so we have the information no later than April, 24, 2017. If you include a donation check, we will provide a receipt for your donation. Come dressed the way you normally come to our chapter meetings.
Our hall will only seat 80 people for a meal so please place your order soon to insure you will have a seat and to give us an accurate head count.
