Prior to our opening night on Thursday evening, we are hoping to offer some fun by doing some corn hole competition. Come prepared to play and let's see who wins.
Arrangements for the Past State Councilor's luncheon are underway, so be ready to pay the $20.00 fee when you arrive. If you plan to attend, please let me know so we can let the Inn know how many will be having lunch.
We are planning a reception for Thursday evening and a banquet for Friday evening. Per Resolution No. 14 adopted at last year's State Session the banquet is free to members attending the State Session. The cost to non-members will be $30.00 per person. Plans for entertainment for the opening night and the banquet are underway. Start saving your items now for the Chinese auction.
We will need an accurate count of the number of your Council members who will be attending the banquet. Please get this information to Joyce no later than June 21, 2019.
