Dealer Dinner 2016

Our pot luck Dealer Dinner will be on Thursday, November 17th, at Jamil TempleDinner will start at 5:30. Even if you must be a little late, we still want you to be there, just plan to bring a dessert.  It takes time to feed sixty or more people. Come to meet our old and new vendors.  Come to enjoy the company of our fellow club members. For several years you have fed many tired and hungry vendors that greatly appreciated your talents and generosity.  This year we have more vendors than we have ever had at Jamil.  We will need more food.  As in past years, we again ask you to bring food, condiments, drinks, and paper products.  Email or call me and tell me what you are bringing.  I’ll keep a list and email it to the membership so everyone can see what we have and need.

It you don’t cook or bake we can use paper plates, napkins, cups, ice, drinks, a loaf of bread, butter or margarine, pickles, cool whip or whipped cream, salt and pepper and snacks like chips.
