Dickens of a Dinner 2013 Coming Saturday December 7

by Ann Carson

This is the 25th anniversary of our yearly fund raiser. It’s a great way to meet your neighbors and show off our interesting houses. We need lots of volunteers. A five course meal will be served in five houses during the evening. We dress in Victorian costumes and rent a wagon with horses to trans- port our guests. It is a wonderful romantic evening. We need guides, cooks, waiters and someone to help decorate houses. Join the fun. The workers all get together afterward to celebrate another successful year.

If you wish to attend the affair it is $65.00 per person, $130.00 per couple.

Call Ann Carson to volunteer or to purchase tickets. 242-1143
