A reservation is required for dinner meetings—our Call Committee contacts members a week prior to ask if they will attend. We welcome people who are interested in becoming a member and would like to learn more about the club. However, prospective members should contact Membership Chairman Mark Harris (410-382-7071) or another club member before coming so that arrangements can be made with the restaurant.

Our dinner meetings combine business and pleasure. Members and guests arrive between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. to socialize before being seated promptly at 6:30 for dinner. A cash bar is available. Dinner meetings generally end by 8:30 p.m.

The program for regular meetings includes the presentation of our Student of the Month and usually an informative guest speaker. Special dinners are scheduled for major programs such as celebration of Youth Appreciation Week and the Essay and Oratorical Contests.
