IRON MOUNTAIN — The Dickinson Chapter of the Michigan Association of Retired School Personnel will host its annual Christmas Party on Thursday, Dec. 14, at Pine Grove Country Club in Iron Mountain.

Following the noon luncheon, the Kingsford Jazz Band directed by Ben Sherk will perform.

A social hour with non-alcoholic punch, punch with cheer, mimosas, and coffee will begin at 11 a.m. followed by a noon luncheon. A cash bar also will be available. The noon luncheon will feature roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, and a cranberry salad. A chef salad is available by request when making reservations as well. No alterations may be made to either selection. A dessert will be provided.

The calling committee will begin contacting members Sunday. If you have not been contacted by noon Thursday, email Patty Rose at pmrose@charter.net or call 906-779-5423 to make a reservation. If you need to add or cancel reservations, the deadline is noon Friday.

Members who requested online reservations will be contacted by email that same week. If you send in a reservation online, you will receive a verification email. If you do not receive confirmation of your reservation by email, please send the request again.

As with those making reservations through callers, anyone who needs to add or cancel a reservation should do so by the noon Monday deadline.

Members are asked to bring new adults and children’s hats, mittens, gloves, caps, wool socks or underwear for the Salvation Army Family Christmas bags.
