More seats at the table

Bill Moss has now reserved a second table for the dinner Thursday night and is looking for three more of us to sign up. We have 19 people signed up for dinner now. Each table costs $250 and seats 10.

We have room for one more person, so if anyone was holding back because of a lack of dinner spots, please let Bill know. He will have to pay for any unused seating. It’s a very worthwhile cause and the meals served by Kirkwood are definitely worth the $25. I’d rather not have to eat more than one of them.
Spouses and friends are welcome.

Thanks,
Bill Moss,
PS: please send any checks to me at 3919 Belden Ct NE., 52402 or  bring them to the dinner.
