Networking begins at 11:30 am and our festive lunch and program starts promptly at Noon.

MSWIT's long time friend, Marc Becker, and the staff of the Higgins Hotel will create a special Christmas cocktail at Kilroy's at the very special price of only $5.00.   In addition to passed appetizers, Higgins will also be offering a complimentary champagne toast in Kilroy's prior to lunch. 

Cafe Normandie's Chef has a very special Christmas lunch meal planned for all of us to enjoy.   Our lunch kicks off with a brief guest "welcome" performance by the Victory Belles, the performing trio of the National WWII Museum.

Your MSWIT Board has special Christmas surprises for all members attending to enjoy!

Higgins will be providing an amazing door prize...a certificate for a free overnight stay at the beautiful Higgins Hotel and everyone will receive discount coupons for a return visit to both Kilroy's and Cafe Normandie.


Message from Marc Becker for any member who would like to "Take the Elevator Home":   We have set up a special rate for MSWIT to use in case they want to stay the night with us after the luncheon.  It is a “papa noel” type rate….almost a gift!   And will allow guests the chance to spend some time shopping and or dining in town.   Our Café Normandie will have the fantastic Réveillon Dinner Menu during that period too, so another good reason.

The rate is $99 - offered for December 13 & 14
