Carl pointed out that I must have the ability to change times and dates.

I said November instead of December for the holiday dinner.  

I am reissuing my reminder with the correct date.  Who besides Carl noticed?
Of course, it was a test!!


Good Morning,

A reminder that the Potomac Chapter Holiday get-together will take place on
December 10 at 6:00 pm with a reception and 7:00 pm for dinner.  The
location is Kora Restaurant at 2250 Crystal drive at Crystal City.  The cost
is $35 including tip and taxes with a $3  addition if you order steak.

As you will read below the deadline for an RSVP is December 3.  

If you RSVP to attend and are a no show, you still must pay.  We have to
enter into a contract with the restaurant a few days prior to the event and
guarantee the number of diners.  The chapter must pay for this number even
if you choose not to participate after agreeing to come.  If you are unable
to afford to participate, please contact me, the chapter may be discretely
able to help.  We do not want anyone to be unable to participate because of
the price.

Attached below is the menu for our holiday banquet on December 10 at Kora
Restaurant located at 2250 Crystal Drive in Arlington, VA. 

The price remains the same as last year : $35 for three courses and
complimentary tea, coffee, and soda. Wine and other adult beverages are
available for individual purchase during the reception and dinner. There is
an extra charge of $3 for the steak.

By December 3, please RSVP with your dinner selections to Social Chair
