Dear Chaine,

I hope you are all well and maintaining your social distancing. I do apologize for not being more communicative during the last few months...but the situation in NY seems to change daily and planning seems at times pointless.

We had hoped to have an outdoor event a few weeks ago in the Finger Lakes region but that proved impossible to confirm. Our Summer Picnic which was to be in early August at the Steinwachs' was cancelled as the Floreano Convention Center has yet to reopen which means our Induction scheduled for Sunday Nov. 1st of this year will be postponed to 2021. 

We are re-scheduled for the Genesee Valley Club next May for our Spring Formal and again at the FCC for the November Induction. We will work to fill in the rest of the year when travel and commerce are a bit more available.

I wanted to try and schedule a holiday get together. Our gracious host the last few Decembers, Mark Cleary, had offered to invite us once again to his beautiful East Ave home. I thought it best we go to a restaurant to make people more comfortable as we would be seated for the duration and properly distanced for the evening.

I have confirmed the Next Door Bar and Grill Test Kitchen for Saturday Dec 12th. (Bills are scheduled to play the Steelers on Sunday the 13th) It's located on Monroe Ave. We would have 5 tables of 6, or 30 people.

I need to know how many of you are interested in joining us on that date before I have them put a menu together. We will have wine with each course which will be expertly paired by your fellow members. 

Please do not feel the need to join us if you'll feel the least bit uncomfortable...but do let me know if you can or cannot make it as soon as possible. If we don't have enough interest I will release the date back to Next Door. Please indicate your interest by next Monday October 19th by emailing me, thanks!

 Yours in the Chaine,
