Happy Holidays!    Start planning to attend the December 7 Holiday Party

                              
Please plan to join us for the December 7 Holiday Party at Rancho Canada for just $50 per person.  

Dinner will be catered by Wedgewood, and you can enjoy a wide array of hot and cold appetizers, your choice of chicken piccata with lemon caper sauce or tortellini pesto parmesan, plus salad, potatoes or rice, and fresh baked bread and butter.  There will be a cash bar with an assortment of beer, wine and cocktails.

Dessert will be very special -- you are invited to bring your choice of holiday dessert or cookies to share with all your gardening friends.  12-20 small servings should be the right size.  Feel free to provide your recipe on small cards with your name on it so we can share.

As in previous years, instead of exchanging gifts, we would like to help Angel Project help local families at the holidays.  We encourage you to bring a gift certificate ($15-$25) from a local store that would be appropriate for teenagers (this age group is traditionally underserved).

At this time registration will NOT be on-line. Please RSVP by November 26  to Elaine Kramer at 248-310-6400 or elaine.a.kramer@gmail.com with your choice of entree. You can mail a check to her at 11639 Spur Road, Monterey, 93940, or bring your charge card to the November 9 meeting. Checks should be made out to CVGC.

We're looking forward to seeing you there!
