Card party has hot lunch again

Alice Rock, president of the Hillandale Glengarry Ladies Club, said the group has gone back to serving a hot lunch at the monthly card party luncheons at the clubhouse, 6333 Langston Ave., New Port Richey.

Mrs. Rock explains that the club tried a cold plate featuring a sandwich but most of those attending the social seem to prefer heavier fare.

Mrs. Rock said the entree will vary each month. She decides on the menu, and the kitchen committee prepares the meal, which is served cafeteria style. Dessert and beverages are served at the tables. The volunteer kitchen workers rotate their duties. Among those who help cook and serve are Hazel Hoy, Jean Robatzek, Helen Krant, Evelyn Dean and Alice Rock.

The affair is scheduled every month except December.

Mrs. Rock said that many of those living in the Hillandale Glengarry area are year-round residents, and many others attend from nearby communities.

"We continue the luncheon-card parties during the summer months to accommodate them," she said.

Proceeds from the socials benefit local charities, including the Salvation Army and Shriners.

The next luncheon-card party will be at noon Wednesday. The public is welcome. For information, call the clubhouse, (813) 848-9203.
