During the second course French onion soup followed by a wedge salad for the third course. The fourth course features the main meal with either chicken cordon bleu or steak medallions with shrimp Parmesan complimented by oven-roasted potatoes, steamed California blend vegetables, and sourdough bread made by Brandon Wagner, a board member for the arts cooperative. The final course features a dessert buffet.
The drinks include a drink during cocktail hour and a drink paired with each course.
The social hour is at 6 p.m., dinner at 7, and a party following.
“The event’s focus is the meal,” Obley-Price said. “We are serving a top-notch meal and allowing plenty of time for people to eat and enjoy the experience. We want people to be able to talk to their table mates, mingle with others, and give a warm welcome to spring. Let’s celebrate the start of a new season.”
