The Glenside Color Computer Club is offering a catered dinner during CoCoFEST! on Saturday, November 6 at 6 PM. The buffet style dinner will be served by Shelby Campbell’s Tavern and Grill. The “list” cost is $26 per person but the Glenside Color Computer Club is subsidizing the dinner so don’t pass up this bargain when you preregister! For members who preregister, the cost will be $20 per person and free for youngsters 12 & under. If you register at the door, the catered dinner will be $25 per person only while spots are available.
