OCREA BUSINESS LUNCHEON MEETING
December 12, 2019
By: Janice Sovinee, Luncheon Chair
How fitting that our Holiday Luncheon will be celebrated on Gingerbread House Day highlighted by a full moon! Bringing with us feelings of "Great Expectations" and the blessed camaraderie of our members, both current and new, please come at 11:00 AM sharp. We will be meeting at the Days Hotel, Atlantis Ballroom, 290 Route 37 East, Toms River 08753, (732) 244-4000. As we so enjoyed last year's program, Peggy Ell has received a commitment from Kevin Walters that we have splendid entertainment coming from Lakewood High School to fill our hearts with holiday cheer.
During the business meeting, coffee and tea will be available upon request. Our luncheon will include a mesclun greens salad with red wine vinaigrette. Our entree selections are:
- Sliced roasted New York strip steak with wild mushroom sauce
- Roulade of Chicken Florentine with spinach and Boursin cheese, charred tomato velour sauce
- Ginger infused salmon with a honey teriyaki glaze
These entrees will be served with roasted potatoes, mixed vegetables and freshly baked dinner rolls with butter. Our dessert will be cheesecake with strawberry sauce accompanied by hot coffee or tea. For our members who prefer gluten-free or a vegetarian meal, both are available upon request from your server. Please indicate your preferences on the reservation form so I can forward the information to the banquet manager in a timely fashion. A cash bar will be available to all.
Please send in your reservation form by Monday, December 2nd. Questions? Please call (732) 477-1711 or (908) 330-3691. If you are registering more than one person, please identify each person's menu selection by name. Remember to check if this is a new member or a 1st luncheon or both if applicable. We are looking forward to your company and good will at the Days Hotel!

The Peoples Pantry
At our October Luncheon The Peoples Pantry van will be parked at the entrance to Clarion Hotel & Conference Center of Toms River until 11:15 a.m. to accept your food donations. The driver can also accept checks, payable to The Peoples Pantry, but not cash.
Any non-perishable foods including breakfast items such as pancake mix, cereal, maple syrup, peanut butter & jelly are appreciated. However, the pantry does not need beans as Goya Foods donates 2,000 pounds of their products a week.
Just remember, whatever you donate will help feed a needy Ocean County resident.
