    Lunch is $30 per person.  PAYMENT MAY BE MADE BY CREDIT CARD ON-LINE, or by check, cash or credit card at the door.  Either way, prior registration is recommended as seating is limited due to social distancing requirements for table spacing.

    Master of ceremony for the night will be our Chapter President, Jim Albert or 1st VP Truman Parmele.  They will guide us through the evening festivities to include intro of guest speaker and any added announcements.   

    Social hour begins at 11am.  Our program will start at 12pm with dinner beginning around 12:30pm, with speaker at 1pm.  Dress is business casual and spouses and other guests are encouraged to attend.

    As we have done in our past meetings during the ongoing Pandemic, the Inlet Affairs staff and the Grand Strand Chapter will be taking several precautions to help keep dinner attendees safe.  These include:

         - temperature taking upon arrival (with a non-contact infrared thermometer)

         - disposable gloves will be provided to those who want them

         - facial masks are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED when not seated/eating at your table and will be provided, or you may bring your own.

         - Inlet Affairs staff will serve food to guests in a buffet line in appropriate safety attire and avoid shared food or drink containers at the tables

         - Inlet Affairs staff will sanitize facilities, high touch points, restrooms, etc. and hand sanitizer stations will be available.

         - Seating will also be set at a social distance

    If you have any additional concerns, questions or suggestions about event safety precautions, please contact Jim Albert, Chapter President, via email: or text/cell: 203-509-8555 or Truman Parmele, Chapter 1st VP: email: or text/cell: 703.258.2708.
