The NMGC 30th Anniversary Celebration is just a few weeks away and we are looking forward to seeing you there!  The planning committee has received several questions regarding event details. We thought this information would be helpful to all.

  • This is a celebration, a reception, a party.  North Central loved the idea of our celebrating in their venue.  They are providing the Wentz lobby at a very nominal charge for our party.  Although it’s at Wentz and we’ll probably do some singing, it’s not a concert.
  • Like our past celebrations for the 10th and 20th anniversaries, this is an adult event.
  • We’re working with a caterer to provide a nice selection of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, water/pop/beer/wine/coffee, and cake.
  • The per person price is in keeping with our prior celebrations; the committee has worked hard to create a memorable event while reining in the cost.
  • We will honor our consistent and persistent approach of ‘no one left behind’.  If the cost of this event is a hardship, please let Dave know and arrangements will be made (just like dues or trips).  If you can make it, we want you at the event.
  • Suggested dress for the event is ‘Casually Elegant’.  For men that means nice slacks and shirt, perhaps a sport jacket (ties are optional).
  • We do expect to do some singing of Glee Club repertoire past and present.  We’ll have booklets of music available for the event – so you don’t have to worry about having anything memorized.
  • We will have NMGC memorabilia, scrapbooks, photos, a slideshow and some video tapes for you to look at.  Let us know if you’d like to bring yours to share, so we can make space available.  Also, PLEASE mark it clearly so you can take it with you after the event.
