GITA DINNER MEETING on Monday, December 12, 2011

Primavera is located at 830 E. Oakland Park Boulevard just west of Dixie and east of KMart. Cost is $20 payable at the door.  There is currently space available for this dinner. We’re now featuring “Singles” tables for those who’d like to meet new friends.  Hope to see you there.


We are now accepting reservations for parties of ANY SIZE.  Our largest  individual round tables seat a maximum of 12. When you make a reservation, please give me the names (both first and last) of those in your party. ALL seats are reserved.  You can make a reservation by simply responding to this email.  When you make a reservation by email I ALWAYS respond. If you don’t get a response I probably didn’t get your email.

Hard to believe, but here it is Holiday Time again and, once again, due to heavy commitments and resultant scheduling conflicts The Opera Group will suspend their meetings in December. We will resume our regular schedule in January.

We would like to thank everyone for your continued support and look forward to providing you with many more afternoons of excitement, enlightenment and enjoyment in the coming year.


In the meantime, have a happy and healthy holiday season and party with a few thousand of your closest friends.
