Attached to this email is the formal invitation to the Chaine’s June event: our Chaine (almost summer) Dinner at The Mercer OTR on Monday, June 14, 2021 at 6:00 PM. As we continue to celebrate our Bailliage’s 40th Anniversary we wanted to focus on our friends who we assisted in our Helping Our Friends Campaign during the pandemic. We were last at the Mercer in September 2018 for our Fall Dinner and we had a very memorable experience. Jon Zipperstein’s kitchen and staff share Jon’s attention to detail in every respect and we’re sure this will be no exception. With a menu that emphasizes the season’s best we look forward to another night to remember. Our wine committee will meet soon to select the perfect wines to match each course. This is an event you won’t want to miss. *See below.

*We are having this in-person event because the Board believes by the date of the event that most, if not all of our members will have had the opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine (which we highly recommend for your safety) and will feel comfortable socializing with others. The serving and kitchen staff will be wearing masks, however, during this event masks will not be required of our members and guests as they will be eating and drinking upon arrival. If you are not comfortable under these conditions, it is best not to attend.
