Default Central Florida Dinner

Attn Central Florida Cruisers:

April 28, 2007 will be our biggest day. Why?

We all meet to have dinner and enjoy each others company. Been awhile since we did this so we will be enjoying the comradery of each other. Yes we will be discussing cruises those that we are taking and those that we have taken. And then we do this in a different location so many of the west coaster of Florida will have an opportunity to attend and not have to drive a long distance. So this is the deal:

When: April 28, 2007 Saturday

Time: 1800 hours (6PM)

Where: Sam Seltzers, Lakeland, Florida
Address: 4820 South Florida Ave
Lakeland, Florida
Phone 863 701 9414
(The Restaurant is located south part of Lakeland)
Directions: Turn off Interstate 4 where Highway 98 crosses and continue south to the Restaurant

This location should attract Cruisers from Sarasoto, Tampa, St Petersburg, Avon Park and many others. All are invited but I need to know who will attend so I can have the Restaurant set up tables.
And Cruisers From Jupitar, Palm City and any other locations. Of Course all those who live in the Orlando area, including us, will be there. Ken and Vita hope you are home to greet us.

And another thing that makes this dinner special, we will be celebrating Helen’s Birthday. But don’t tell her please. Lets make it a surprise party.

I forgot. You do not have to live in Florida to come. Anyone who reads this is invited. Just let me know.

Sorry we won't be able to make this one Ray....we have reservations at Emeril's @ Universal to celebrate Jimmy's 18th (yes, his birthday was the 7th of April but Emerils was full then since it was Easter weekend)
Hugs to Helen for her birthday and tell all we said hello!

I won't make this one Ray but as soon as I get moved to Florida I will finally get to one of the gatherings. Looking forward to seeing you and Helen again and meeting more CruiseMates.

The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I plan to be there. I'm on call, so there is a slight chance I won't make it, but absolutely will be there if there's a way. (90% chance) We certainly look forward to seeing you, Helen, and all the other "Mates" who make it.

Ken and Vita

Ray, thanks for calling us with the invite. Sorry we didn't get back to you as we've been out of town.

We won't be able to make this one - Mark has a bachelor party to attend and I am going out with the girls.

Appreciate you continuing to think of us even though I don't have much time online anymore (and it's not as much of a priority to check in here now that I don't have any cruises booked.)

Y'all have fun!

Cheers,
Michelle P.

oh no I really would love to go to Lakeland; thanks for the invite - but there are lots of weddings coming up and I have back to back pre-wedding activities starting Sat night at 8:00 pm; - it surely would be nice to meet you guys since you are just up the road! but I don't think the dine & dash would be appropriate on such a big celebration dinner.

Hello,
Trevor and I had a great time tonight. We arrived home about 9:30PM. It was fun seeing those there and meeting a couple of new friends. Helen had a wonderful birthday party tonight-supposedly a surprise but little hints kept getting in the way. If she knew anything was going to happen, she certainly acted surprised anyway!! And, she blew out ALL the candles-at the same time!
The pictures have been emailed to RayB so let's cross our fingers that they arrived safely for posting.

Take care. Lynne

Now that the cat is out of the bag please pass along a giant happy birthday to Helen.
