Come and share a fun filled evening!

Joan & Jeff Leonard have been kind enough to open their home to our CTRPCV group for a HOLIDAY PARTY on December 6 from noon to 3 PM.

Our hosts will prepare a main meat dish and CTRPCV will supply the soda & paper/plastic products. Attendees are asked to bring your favorite holiday appetizer, side dish or dessert to share. If you’d like, bring some wine or beer, but eggnog and soda will be served.

We would appreciate an RSVP so we can prepare ahead of time. Let Maureen know what food item you plan to bring. Call Maureen at 203-775-9222 or email so that we will know how many people are planning on attending and so we don’t end up with 12 desserts and no appetizers, wine or beer.

Please bring something special for the raffle… an item that would make a nice gift for a friend or family member. In the past we have raised $550 at this event for our CTRPCV Community Service Fund. Since we are asking for a higher quality raffle item for this Holiday Event, the price of instant raffle tickets will be higher than normal: $10 for 1 ticket & $25 for 3 tickets. As always, the proceeds will go to our Community Service Fund.

In addition we are asking people to please bring a non-perishable food item to donate. Food items collected will be given to Al May (Costa Rica, 1970 – 1972), who will donate them to a local food bank on behalf of the CTRPCV.

If you have any questions about the holiday party on the day of the event, please call Joan Leonard at 203-457-7007 or email Joan at
