Luncheon Speakers for Spring 2023 Session
As you enter the Leisure Ministries Building, there is a table with a place to pay for your lunch which is served on Wednesdays in our dining room. A delicious hot lunch including dessert and iced tea will be available for $10.00, but you must pay for it the week prior since lunches are catered. The menu will be in the weekly Shep- herd’s Staff. Unfortunately, there will be no refunds since we must pay the caterer for all meals ordered, nor will the payment for an unclaimed meal roll over to a future one. You are welcome to bring your own lunch if you would like. Please help yourself to the tea or water on the front tables. It will be necessary for the first Wednesday, April 5 to mail in or drop off your $10.00 ahead of time. We must receive it by Wednesday, March 29. The menu for April 5 is chicken pot pie, salad, and banana pudding. Of course, you may choose to bring your lunch that day.
If you bring a new person on April 5 to check out our classes, he/she will be our guest for lunch, but you must let us know by March 29 so that a reservation can be made for them.
