It is that time of year again! Or it will be before you know it! The club's Holiday Party Guru, Dave Ransom has lined up that well liked venue again for our yearly Holiday Party. The party will be held on Saturday December 1, 2007 from 6:30-12:30 at: Elmcrest Banquets by Biancalana's, 7370 W Grand Avenue, Elmwood Park IL 60707 -- 708-453-3989.
The cost of the party is $26/person, and the club will pick up the balance same as last year. There will be a Cash Bar at 6:30, and dinner will be served at 7:30. There will be an optional gift exchange, so bring one of about $10 value and you get one in exchange. The food selections will be similar to last year however we ask that you please request vegetarian meals in advance with your payment.
Special Announcement: This year’s Holiday Party will mark the long awaited return of the “Abingdon Players” to a club social event. For many years, the “Abingdon Players” were a Chicagoland MG Club tradition at our annual meeting or holiday party. The “Players” were (and still are) a self appointed group of club members who take a lighter look at MG ownership, club business, and the like through theatrical skits along with the accompaniment of the” Singing Magnettes”, a female dominated choral group known more for their mismatched red sweaters than their vocal skills. The “Abingdon Players” have been absent from the CMCG scene for some years now, possibly due to either issues of conscience, an undisclosed plea bargain, a belated recognition of good taste, or perhaps some combination of all three. In any event, the die is cast and club members who attend this year’s Holiday Party will witness the “Abingdon Players” in action for the first time in many years.
Please have all Holiday Party reservation coupons and payment to David Ransom by November 20th.
