Menu items will include a salad; entree choices of Chicken Florentine, a Diablo Portabella or Orange Roughy; and dessert. Coffee, tea or soda will be included. There will be a cash bar for alcoholic beverages, as well.

Following the luncheon, attendees will have a chance to purchase raffle tickets and partake in the “white elephant” raffle. Attending members will donate some of their things to be raffled off.
