Happy Thanksgiving, CDS members!


We thank Donna Paternostro for agreeing to serve an extra year this past year after her 2013 and 2014 terms as President were completed.

We are planning to have a quorum at the Holiday Party dinner on December 6th in order to vote in these new officers for 2016 & 2017:

President:   Marjorie Schnerr

Editor:         Marilyn Lonergan

Our current officers, Vice President & Show Chairman, Jesse Peterson, Secretary, Barbara LaRochelle and Treasurer, Sal Corio will remain in their current positions.

Please contact Marge by November 28th to make your reservations with your dinner selection. We hope you find some time to attend the party to have some holiday fun.

Dinner Choices for the Holiday Party:

Chicken Marsala                  $26

Stuffed Filet of Sole             $28

Veal Parmigiana                  $30

Grilled New York Sirloin      $36

These prices include tax and tip and CDS will pay for a portion of everyone’s dinner.

Reservations with dinner choices need to be made by November 29th to Marge by either phone or email. Sal will notify each attendee by email as to the actual cost of their dinner once all attendees are known and the individual CDS subsidy is calculated.

We look forward to having a good attendance at the dinner.
