We have added an “express line” for the membership luncheons. After you make your reservation for the luncheon by phone or e-mail response and have a check made out to MCRW with your name on it, someone will come down the line and stamp your hand to enter the luncheon. You may then proceed to the name tag table if you wish to have a name tag. Those paying cash must get in the “regular” line to pay your luncheon fee. The “express line” should speed up the entrance time to the luncheon.
