GLPA has two banquets each year: a holiday banquet, usually the first Monday in December, and the end of year banquet, usually the first Monday in June, held at the Porthole Restaurant in Lynn, Massachusetts. The Banquets are for all GLPA members and their families. They are nights of good food, camaraderie, good-natured banter, and as always, a few laughs.

Members should sign up for the banquets and payment for your dinner is expected prior to the event.

Our new banquet chairman for the 2017-2018 club season will be Alix Smullin. The Board of Directors and membership of Greater Lynn would like to thank Dave Parsons, MNEC for his many years as our dedicated Banquet Chairman.

Christmas and the New Year are not far off and that means our annual Holiday Banquet is also right around the corner. All members, families, and friends are invited to join in on the fun at the Porthole Pub on the Lynnway in Lynn. Good friends, good food, good times. We’ll have door prizes and of course our famous and lively Yankee Swap. If you’ve never attended a Yankee Swap, here’s how it works. Everyone who wants to participate brings a wrapped gift - $15 approximate value. Mark the gift Lady or Gent if appropriate and bring it to the banquet. During the evening participants draw numbers and take turns picking out a gift. You can keep the gift you open or swap it for a gift belonging to someone who opened before you. As you can imagine it gets pretty interesting at times. So don’t be left out of the fun.

Happy hour is 6:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. Dinner is at 7:00 P.M. Please set aside the date and make your reservations with our new Banquet Chairman Alix Smullin. Make your reservations with Alix any Monday night at the club, or sign up on the left side column of this page by November 27th. Just click on the orange banquets sign-up form link, chose from the dropdown menu and please remember, you must put your dinner choice in the comments box before you hit send. No matter how you sign up please pay Alix at the club or mail a check prior to the December 4 date to Alix at her home-see address below. Make checks payable to GLPA.

We hope to speed up the dinner service this year by sticking to the three menu selections below but if you have special dietary preferences or other questions, please find Alix on a Monday night or e-mail her. We have a change in art of the menu and a bit of an increase in the prime rib price, but still worth it for a night of good fun among your friends. Choices are
Prime Rib - $35
Broiled Scallops - $26
Poultry Stuffed Breast of Chicken - $23

Call Alix with any questions. Please mail checks payable to GLPA to
