Christmas Lunch -- POSTPONED

The CCRA Board regrettably announces the postponement of our annual Christmas Lunch celebration.  We apologize for the postponement of this festive event but in lieu of this celebration we are looking forward to an exciting get-together in the spring.  Please plan to join us at our Spring Fling Celebration in April/May of 2018.  We will send out a notice with details about the event closer to the date. 
The CCRA will happily offer a refund to all who have reserved and paid for the Christmas Lunch or if you prefer, your reservation and payment will be transferred to the Spring Fling Event.  In the meantime, the CCRA wishes all of our members a Merry Christmas, a Happy Holiday Season and a Very Happy New Year.
