Hello, Cyril! I hope you'll be able to join us for Estelle's retirement party on September 30. We're meeting at the Elks Lodge for dinner at 7:00 PM. The menu selections are grilled chicken, steak, salmon with lemon butter, or vegetarian lasagna (made with almond cheese for vegans). Please let us know if you're planning to attend, how many people you're bringing, and your meal selection(s).
RSVP by September 23 so we can let the caterers know how many meals to prepare.
