Foxboro Jaycees Progressive Dinner…. Progressive Party 2017
This year we are changing this project up. We will be eliminating the dinner part and just having 2 rounds of appetizers. Depending on how many people sign up we will need either 4 or 6 app houses. We will all then gather at Mike and Helene Savages home for dessert at the end of the night.
Jaycees — You are cordially invited to attend the 2017 Progressive Party
Saturday, December 16, 2017 6:00 p.m. – ?
For those of you who have never attended, the progressive party serves as our chapter holiday party. It is a fun and relaxing social event that you don’t want to miss! In true Jaycee spirit, everyone who attends this event plays a role in making it successful, and it’s a wonderful night out!
Here is how it works…you agree to fill one role for the night. The following is more information regarding each role:
- Appetizer Cook – each individual appetizer cook should bring two appetizer dishes for 20 people. Contact your host to coordinate food and cooking schedules.
- Appetizer House – Plan to open your home to host an appetizer. Plan to have enough soda, beer, wine and/or punch to serve 20 people.
Once you have been “assigned” to a role, the committee selects your name randomly to determine to which houses you will be attending for appetizers. Everyone will then meet up at one dessert house at the end of the night.
Each individual participant in this event will be asked to spend $25 per person toward their food and/or supply purchases to make their role successful. For example, if you are a couple that is hosting, you should plan to spend $50 ($25 x 2) on drinks
The committee will be calling the roster over the next couple of weeks to confirm attendees, so please expect a phone call. You will be asked to make your first and second choice for your role. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s first choice and will notify you of your role as soon as possible. Once we have confirmed attendees and roles, you will receive an invitation with your role and assigned homes for appetizers.
This event takes a lot of planning to ensure its success (and so that we can determine your “assignments,”) so the favor of your affirmative reply is requested by Saturday, November 25.
We look forward to seeing you! If you have any questions, please contact Andrea Johnstone firstname.lastname@example.org .
