NEXT TWO WESTERN VALLEY GROUP LUNCHES: NOV 20 & DEC 11
Our next two meals are rather special so I thought I’d give plenty of notice.

Our November lunch on November 20th, 12:00noon at Lola’s in Annapolis Royal is not a lunch at all but a full English Roast Beef dinner. The meal includes roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, vegetables including roasted parsnips, dessert and tea or coffee. The cost is $24 each and I need a definite commitment so Janet doesn’t prepare too much or too little. If you say you’re coming you will be on the hook for $24, even if you don’t show up.

I have to let Janet know by November 17th so let me know before then if you’ll be joining us. My email address is grain@ns.sympatico.ca or you can just reply to this email.

Our December meal on December 11th at 1:00pm is also special. Blaine Schumacher and Heide Richells are again opening their home in Annapolis Royal for a Christmas luncheon. I’ll provide more details later on this event.

HRM CHRISTMAS GATHERING – WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 4 AT 6:00PM
Because Sheilia Sperry has sold her home, which was also the home of the BATANS clubhouse, there will be no Christmas Potluck this year.  However, I have booked the Solarium at Swiss Chalet on Lacewood Drive on Wednesday Dec 4th at 6 PM for a Christmas gathering.  FYI, their Festive dinner is available after Oct 31st!.  See https://www.swisschalet.com/en/menu.html 

If you would like to attend, please RVSP by email to myself at johnspl311@gmail.com ASAP as seating is limited to 54.  We will be reserving spots on a first come, first served basis.  If you reserve, but find out later you can’t make it, please let me know ASAP so we can offer the spot to someone else.  Looking forward to seeing you all there!
