Depending on the weather, there is outdoor seating if anyone wants to stay for a sit down dinner. Drinks, pizza, salads, and appetizers can be ordered in the area reserved for us at the bar and nearby tables too. Please let us know if you plan to attend so we can give Pi an estimate of our numbers by Friday, April 24th. You can “sign up” by logging on to your DRC account at www.myvolunteerpage.com.
