December 2013 – Meeting / Christmas Dinner

Just a reminder that the December Meeting will not be held this year as usual as it is customary to have the Christmas get together at the Golden Corral.

And this is also a reminder that it will not be on the customary third monday, but rather Thursday, 19 Dec 2013 at 6:30PM.

Forwarded from Mark Whitmore
Subject: FARC Holiday Dinner

Could not get a reservation for the 16th at the Golden Coral. They are closing early for their own Holiday party.

Thursday the 19th of December is available so I have made a reservation for that date at 6:30.

The Golden Coral is located at 5621 Spectrum Dr, Frederick, MD 21703.

All current members, former members, friends and associates of members are invited to enjoy some good food and fellowship.

We will be dining in the room to your right as you enter the restaurant. We will not exchange gifts this year.
