January 2017 District 1 Luncheon

Posted by

All –

Attached is the flyer for District 1’s January lunch meeting. Please mail me with your reservations on or before noon on Friday, January 20, 2017. Because of the federal holiday and ice storm yesterday, response time is a little short.

Please note that you can now pay for your lunch registrations on the NePA website.

Also, because of how Anthony’s tends to wait until all (most) have arrived before they start serving, please try to be there as close to 11:30 as possible so we can all get in and out of there on time.

THANKS!!
