Christmas Dinner Party
on Saturday, December 5, 2009

Dear members and guests,

We will conclude our program for 2009 and celebrate the Christmas season with our traditional social highlight, the

Christmas Dinner Party
Saturday, December 5, 2009, 18.00 hours
in the
Hirsch Hotel Gehrung
Ostfildern-Ruit, Stuttgarterstrasse 7

You are cordially invited to join our holiday celebration. We will begin the evening with a reception, serving Christmas punch to put everyone in the right mood (with and without alcohol). When all are of sufficient good cheer, we will proceed with our festive holiday dinner, consisting of the following courses:
1. Goose bouillon with small dumplings (Gänse-Kraftbrühe mit Morchel-Klösschen).
2. Roast duck strips on a winter green salad with orange slices and walnuts in a sherry vinaigrette dressing.
3. Filet steak of Angus beef in a port wine sauce with seasonal vegetables and potatoes au gratin.
4. Nougat parfait and sweet dumplings (Topfen-knödel) with elderberry (Holunder)-plum sauce, whipped cream and Christmas cookies. 

Along with this delicious dinner we will be treated to some light holiday entertainment, enjoy a Christmas story, sing Christmas carols together (be prepared to join in the festive mood and sing along!), and maybe even experience a surprise or two!
Following our tradition we would greatly appreciate it if some of the ladies (and gentlemen!) bring homemade Christmas cookies to share with others and to serve as table decorations.
The price for the dinner is € 31. Drinks with the meal are extra. The club will pay for the punch and entertainment, and also contribute to the cost of dinner to keep the price as listed above. Pleasant conversation, as always, is free, but you must bring lots of Christmas cheer to make the evening a success.

We think that we have put together a program that all will enjoy, and we would love to see a big turnout to pass the joyous holiday spirit on to everyone.
