Registration the annual BAESG Holiday Party is coming to a close.

Come join your friends and colleagues in this annual celebratory event. We will enjoy a formal sit down dinner at David's Restaurant for an evening of networking, food, and drinks. The restaurant will be decorated in Holiday Style.

This event will be in the restaurant, not the banquet facility, and will start off with hors d'oeuvres, and a no-host bar that offers a variety of refreshing beverages. Dinner will be served at 6:30 and a delightful palate of desserts will cap off the meeting.

The board of directors plans to award the annual $1500 scholarship to a worthy local EHS college student. Thanks to the PDC sponsors for funding this effort.

The evening will be highlighted by the festive raffle giveaway.

And, If we are lucky, we might just get a visit from good old Santa.
