We will be in the Heritage Room which is $250. Marie arranged to have Meal Plan B. Although it is slightly more expensive it has a better choice of meals. The price of the wine went up $5 a bottle from last year to $27 and Marie ordered 9 bottles. Marie guaranteed 35 people but suggested a special price for early sign-ups with a subsidy. Various suggestions were made as to how the sign-ups and subsidies should work.
