Family Dinner tickets are available. Family can include payment for dinner tickets along with membership dues. For those Family members who have already paid their Family dues, please send another check to Sheila for your dinner tickets.

As you consider your budget for the reunion, the banquet committee thought it would be prudent to have your start thinking specifically about your budget for the family dinner the evening of July 28, 2018. With this in mind:

  • The dinner will be Buffet Style for the adults and the cost breakdown is $65.00 for Entrée and Dessert. Included are salmon, chicken breast, NY strips, potatoes, rice, steamed vegetable, pastries, cupcakes, and crumble with whipped cream. Included also with the buffet are several salad options and a soup for starters. The other relevant consideration is an additional 25% service tax, plus an 8.25 % state sales tax. Essentially, your budget for the banquet is $90 for each adult.
  • For children under 12, there is a children's menus offered for $25, with an additional 25% service tax, plus an 8.25 % state sales tax. For the sake of transparency, the children's menu is comprised of chicken strips, fries, steamed seasonal vegetables, and fruit cup. Significantly, for children the budget for the banquet is $35 for each child.

Additionally, We hope this is helpful, as we want everyone attending to participate in the family banquet. there will be coffee, ice tea, hot tea, and water provided.

Reminder: Dues are $35.00 per family, FOR EACH YEAR, even the non-Reunion year.
For those grown children, living at home, each adult Family member (18 yrs. or more) of a given household is responsible for paying their own dues and cannot be counted with their parents' annual dues. If a Family member is between 18-22, and still going to school, he/she CAN be included with his/her parents annual dues.
