HOSPITALITY RESERVATION REPORT
A warm welcome to all Mahoning County Retired Teachers. I am Maggie Skripac. your Reservation/Hospitality chairperson. Here are some things you need to remember when sending in your meeting reservations:
1. No more checks for 2 or more meetings. The bookkeeping gets too complicated, when holding the money for a second luncheon. PLEASE PAY AS YOU GO! 2. Local mail goes to Cleveland for processing. It can sometimes take up to 10 days from the time you mail me your check until I receive it. 3. I must receive your reservation check by the Wednesday before the luncheon to guarantee your reservation. The banquet center needs to order the food in advance. Please mail your checks early to secure your luncheon reservations.
