Dear Fellow Retirees
In just a few short weeks our annual Retirees’ Christmas Dinner will be here—and we do look forward to seeing you at that time.  The date is Sunday, December 4, 2016, at the Arizona Conference Office, 13405 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale.  The serving line will begin at 11:30 a.m. so you will want to be there before 11:30 to check in, to receive your name tag, and to be seated.
Reservations and payment of $12 per person can be made ahead of time, with checks made payable to the Arizona Conference and mailed to:  AZ Conference Receptionist, PO Box 12340, Scottsdale, AZ 85267.  Payment can also be made by credit/debit card over the phone. We will gladly accept your payment at the door, which is $13 on the day of the event.  Our space is limited, so the first 100 people who RSVP will be accepted.
Deadline for reservations is November 28.
Again this year we have an extraordinary program planned, along with a delicious dinner.  It is always a joy to see old acquaintances and make new ones. Please come and fellowship with us and enjoy the beginning of the blessed Christmas season.
