SJBAS Christmas Party—The BIG Affair of the Year
The party this year will be held Thursday, December 9, 2010, at 6 p.m. in the Pullman Room (downstairs) at the Strater Hotel with a cash bar. Included in the $35/person cost are: veggie and cheese appetizers; dinner salad of mixed seasonal greens accompanied by ruby red grapes, Gorgonzola cheese, candied walnuts and raspberry vinaigrette; entree of maple rosemary chicken breast with Boursin cream sauce, new potatoes, seasonal vegetables; warm rolls and butter; chef's selection dessert; and coffee, iced tea and water service. The vegetarian entree will be rosemary saffron crepes filled with roasted vegetables, together with the rest of the menu listed above. All taxes and gratuities (with the exception of any cash bar gratuities) are included in the price. To reserve your spot, please send checks pay- able to "SJBAS" for $35 per person to treasurer Mark Gebhardt, 107 St. Andrews Circle, Du- rango CO 81301, no later than December 7, 2010, earlier if possible. Indicate a chicken or vegetarian meal. Chicken is the default option.
GET A FREE CHRISTMAS PARTY PARKING PERMIT for three parking lots within a block of the hotel. To receive one, send a stamped self-addressed envelope to Mark along with your check. He will mail a permit to you. Requesting a parking permit is strongly sug- gested. The party is not at Fort Lewis College this year because the Student Union Building is still undergoing extensive remodeling, which impacts access to the building. The cost would be as much as the $35/person we are paying at the Strater. There will be door prizes, a description of our 2011 field trips and activities, and our favorite Lyle Hancock PowerPoint presentation of highlights of 2010 field trips and activities. Please email photos for Lyle's PowerPoint 2010 presentation as attachments to Lyle at firstname.lastname@example.org, in JPG format, no larger than 1.5 MB and no smaller than 500 kb. You may also copy the photo files to a DVD, CD or thumb drive and deliver them to Lyle. Call Lyle at 764-4531 or email him to arrange this.
2011 chapter officers will be elected. Candidates include: Andy Gulliford, President; Bill Cagle and Gail Schulz, Co-vice presidents; Mark Gebhardt, Treasurer; Jeff Davis, Secre- tary; Bob Powell, CAS Rep.; Eliane Viner, PAAC Coordinator. For more information contact Gail Schulz at email@example.com, 970-259-3249 or Bill Cagle at firstname.lastname@example.org, 970-385-4566.
