Invite a Guest Luncheon - November 9th
This is your chance to invite a guest to CSC you think we would be interested in meeting. Someone you have been planning to bring up to the club but couldn't work it out or an individual who you have met (insurance agent, banker, coworker, neighbor, etc that you don't know well but would like to know better). This is not a formal affair but do wear something with a CSC logo on it to identify you as a club member.
Bob Beauregrad will be speaking on his involvement in the retaking of the Maersk Alabama back from Somali Pirates. I missed his presentation last year and have been looking for an excuse to hear him speak. For those of you not familiar with the story watch the movie Captain Phillips staring Tom Hanks.
We will be serving at 12:20 an excellent (large) lunch with a limit of 30 total attendees so make your reservation early. Try to be there by 12:15 latest. Ask your guest to try to budget a hour and a half from work. The cost is $20.00 per person cash or check at the door, reservations required! Be prepared to say a little something about your guest so we get a chance know who they are an why you invited them.
When you make your reservation with Billy Ray Davis at email@example.com let me know what dish you want and if your guest may have a special dietary need (veggie plate, etc).
Lunch choices are Pork Tenderloin roasted over sweet onions in a German Beer Broth "or" Chicken Cordon Bleu
Both are served with Roasted Garlic Mashed potatoes with cheese, Fresh green beans sauteed with shallots, a salad of mixed field greens and for dessert fresh apple tart.
