Bring An Appetizer - Side Dish To Share!

In true Corinthian fashion, we ask everyone to bring either an appetizer or a side dish to share! Please let Nancy Simms or Pat Atkinson know what you are bringing!
or indicate your choice when making your reservation at

Please bring all foods READY TO SERVE, in recyclable, disposable containers (we gave our dishwashers the day off!). Refrigerator or food preparation space will not be available. Please be aware that food may be sitting in the sun if it is a hot day, so remember this when planning your contribution. Bring enough for 20 servings. 

Members' last name starting with A - L:   Please bring appetizers... please be creative! 
Members' last name starting with L - Z:  Please bring a salad-type dish to support the meal

Any member who would like to contribute beer and/or wine please contact Pat Atkinson directly.

RSVP by June 30th!

Sorry, no advance table reservations - an exception will be made only for members and their crews participating in the boat parade; they must mark their table with the boat name and crew list. Organizers and event staff will also be allowed to keep a table in reserve. Any other members wishing to reserve a table must physically occupy said table in order to keep it for their friends and guests. 

To ensure that there is plenty of food for everyone and in fairness to all event staff and participants who strive to make the day as enjoyable as possible for everyone, we cannot make any exceptions to either the RSVP/door charge or the no-reservations rule. Cancellations after June 30th will incur the full pp charge. 

The Entertainment Committee appreciates your consideration and wishes you all a very enjoyable, happy 4th of July!
