Our Friday night banquet will take place at the Hotel, home to the AAA Four Diamond restaurant Il Palio. We are extremely grateful to Christine Clark and Theodore Front Musical Literature Inc. for their generous support of our banquet. Details about the menu will be made available closer to the time of our meeting, as Il Palio showcases North Carolina's local farmers and artisan producers.
