Conference Dinner

This will be a private dinner in Gregory's honor, catered by the students in EIU's hospitality program, who will provide very nice food for the bargain price of $10.00 per person. Thus, we need to know how many will attend by Wednesday, April 17. To indicate that you will attend, you may either directly contact Kathy Rhodes, who supervises the hospitality program, or if you find it more convenient you may email Charles Delman, who will relay your reservation to Kathy. (To avoid double counting, be sure not to do both!) Either way, please indicate the number in your party (including yourself). 

The dinner will be held in Klehm Hall 1418, a very nice space on the first floor overlooking a courtyard. You can find Klehm Hall on a campus map here http://www.eiu.edu/map/.
