Reception cont.

Erica (one of Bill's many grandkids) is helping with organizing the reception. She created this simple form, and if you could fill it out it would be greatly appreciated. This form is very simple, and is more to make sure we get enough food and beverages for everyone attending.

All you have to do is click on the link, and answer the four (4) questions. 

Again, it is to get general numbers for the people planning on attending.

If the link is NOT working, or you have any questions about this, please email Erica at
