New Lunch Menu Receives Round of Applause

The new lunch menu at a $15. rate was inaugurated at the March 14, 2017 meeting and received approval based on the applause generated after President Bob Murphy asked from the podium what the members thought of the new luncheon offering.                fresh-food

The buffet included salad, pasta, vegetables, meats, and dessert. To help facilitate movement through the buffet line, tables were called and there were 2 serving lines. The biggest improvement will be the variety of meals offered compared to the 3 – ¼ sandwiches previously offered at every meeting for a lot of years.
