Saturday, December 5th, 2015 has been set aside once again as the day to celebrate members of the Mercedes-Benz Club Peachtree Section as well as recognizing our loyal newsletter advertisers who will again be our guests for lunch.
This year’s luncheon will be held at the Chattahoochee Country Club (CCC) located on Lake Lanier near Gainesville, GA (3000 Club Drive, Gainsville, GA 30506), and made available by the generosity of Peachtree and CCC sponsoring member Stu Virgin.
This unique venue has long been a private gated member only dining destination featuring in their own words “world-class chefs”. The Club was organized in 1950 and chartered in 1954 as Chattahoochee County Club on 700 acres that comprised the club facility, golf course, and home sites that surround the golf course. The club today has over eight hundred members with several being Peachtree Section members, among those is Bob Watson of Gainesville.
The clubhouse is situated on a peninsula that provides scenic views of the lake on three sides with lush landscaping. The private dining room reserved for Peachtree seats seventy comfortably with the club agreeing to move us to their ballroom if we exceed that number.
Since the venue is further north than any of our prior holiday luncheon functions, we have purposely scheduled that lunch to be served a half an hour later to allow extra travel time for our “southern” members.
A cash bar will open at 11:30 a.m. for those more than punctual early arriving attendees. Lunch will served at half past noon with attendees being treated to a duo entrée surf and turf presentation of demi-glace beef tenderloin and lemon butter Beurre Blanc roast salmon fillet. The entrée is preceded by a house mixed green salad with ranch dressing and CCC’s own honey balsamic dressing on the side accompanied by asparagus and buttermilk mashed potatoes plus bread and choice of coffee or tea. Dessert is Bourbon Pecan pie with caramel and chocolate sauces. The cost is $40 per attendee.
Again consider bringing an unwrapped toy that Peachtree Section can contribute to the Maine Corp “Toys for Tots” Christmas Drive.
