We are very fortunate that the award-winning Civil War historian and author W. C. Davis will be speaking to us about "The Monstrous Regiment of Women." These were the women who posed as men to serve in the Civil War. This promises to be an outstanding presentation. The evening will begin with a reception at 6:00 PM. The excellent Buffet Dinner begins at 7:00 PM, with our speaker to follow. Thanks to the efforts of several Round Table members, the cost for this year's dinner has been reduced for the second year in a row. The ticket price this year will be $32 for members and their spouses or dates. (The cost for your guests who would like to attend, but are not members of the Round Table will be $35 per person.) Beer, wine, cocktails, and soft drinks will be available at the reception. There is no charge for soft drinks. Tickets for alcoholic beverages may be purchased for $4. We expect to have an enthusiastic response to this annual event and we have to confirm our count early. You are therefore encouraged to make your reservations now. Meeting Attendance for: October 2012 = 68 with members present from as far away as Australia!
