Flamenco anyone?  Maybe yes, or maybe no.  But in any case, what about a great evening out with fellow CRA Members and Guests?  Our annual “Feast in the Forest” was not held in the past 2 years but has now returned for your enjoyment - as we all look to reconnect in a casual outdoor setting.   Our wonderful “A Night in Spain” evening will include great spanish food, beverages and music. 

For your food and beverage enjoyment our Spanish Buffet will include:

  • Pre-dinner tapas (small plate bites)
  • 3 delectable Paella options (yes with a vegetarian choice)
  • A great Spanish sweet, served with Coffee
