Annual Dinner

Astro Dinner

We discussed having a dinner.  It's really important to get together on this now if we are going to make it happen in November as suggested at our last meeting on July 8th by Mary Lou.  We need a head count.  Mark E. was to contact a restaurant or two and Mike W was to send out requests for door prizes.  Now your part is telling us yes or no.  If we can't make November, how about in February like in really old times.  Correct me if I'm wrong about the old time dates.  All I can remember was being snowed out several years.

NJAG Annual Dinner, November 2, 2008

It has been an annual tradition to have a dinner.  This year the Group returns to the Russian Hall in Singac, New Jersey.  The approximate cost will be $30 per person.  This event falls on a Sunday and the dinner lasts four hours.  I anticipate it will start around 1 PM.  It will be a hot buffet.  Drinks will be by the pitcher.  This is fundraiser as well. 
I hope this will be an opportunity to rehash the past and plan for future events.

NJAG party

During the May meeting several members suggested we have a party again.  Phil, Jim P, and I have been looking at several restaurants for ideas.  The plan was to decide by the July meeting.  If any of you folks have an idea, please share it with us.
