New Year's Eve Cabaret
Want to get dressed up and ring in 2012? Come out to our New Year's Cabaret at 10:00 p.m. on December 31, at the "M" Center (aka the Activity Center). Enjoy a light meal and entertainment including a live band, spoken word, musical selections and more. We'll count down to 2012 and toast each other (with Martinelli's, of course!) Tickets are only $10, and can be purchased from Tamara Sam, Rosanne Hunter, Ricque Sinclair or Linda Irizarry. We haven't held a "dress-up" event at Metro in a long time and we hope to see all of you there!
