The “list” cost is $35 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 $20 per person only while spots are available. We expect to run out so make sure you preregister so we have enough food!!
