Winter Picnic Invitation

You are cordially invited to a Winter Picnic on Sunday, March 15, 2009.  This is the date that Minis In Northern Illinois will host their annual banquet.  We will start at 1:00 pm in the afternoon.  The event will formally end at 5:00 pm. Here are the details of the event:

Location:  Village Squire Restaurant.  They are located at 480 Randall Road, South Elgin, Illinois – about 4 ½ miles north of Illinois Route 64 or 3 ½ miles South of U.S. Route 20. Randall Road is just West of Illinois Route 31. Maps available from Ferb upon request or at the Village Squire web site (see below).

Food & Drink: We will be occupying a private room and have a great menu planned.  Choice of: Berry Nut Salad OR Village Cheeseburger OR Smothered Chicken Dinner OR Fish & Chips OR Prime Rib. All 5 dinner choices will include soup or salad, all menu beverage choices (except alcoholic), and ice cream.  Cost to members will be $10.00 with a $15.00 cost to non-members. The club will pick up the balance. Cash Bar for booze. Members can order appetizers before dinner at their own expense.
