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. 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.

Thanks to Alex Smullin our Banquet Chair for all her time and work on these two fun and important nights.

GLPA Annual Holiday Banquet & Yankee Swap-Off Site at Spinelli's-10 Newbury St- Rte 1S-Peabody
December 06, 2021 6PM Happy Hour- 7PM Dinner

The holidays will be here before we know it - and that means our annual Holiday Banquet is coming right up. All members, families, and friends are invited to join the fun at – Spinelli’s on Route 1 South at the Lynnfield-Peabody line. Good friends, good food, good times. We’ll have door prizes and of course our famous and lively Yankee Swap. For everyone who wants to participate, here’s how it works; acquire and wrap a gift - $10 approximate value, mark the gift ‘Lady’ or ‘Gent’ if appropriate, bring it to the banquet and 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.

Don’t be left out of the fun. See Banquet Chairman Alix Smullin any Monday at the club to sign-up and pay or email Alix at the email below. You can also sign up using the online sign up in the left column of this page. Please make sure you write in the comment box the number in your party and any specific dietary requirements.If you emailed Susan with your name you are already signed up-you now just need to pay. We ask that payment be made prior to the banquet night. Alix will be at the club Monday Nov. 22 and Monday Nov. 29 to collect your money. She is normally found sitting near the treasurer’s desk prior to the meetings.
