Two upcoming NC EE Fan Club meetings!It's time to mark your calendars for two exciting events planned for our club:
You may recall that we used to meet at Golden Corral for our lunch meetings. Unfortunately, they no longer take reservations on weekends, which means we can't reserve the private dining area. However, we've found another venue for large parties, and it has a more tranquil atmosphere and tasty, affordable food: Perkins Family Restaurant & Bakery. Perkins serves breakfast all day, and their lunch menu is large and varied. They even have a "Fit Favorites" section with healthy choices and plenty of discounts for diners over age 55:
And now for the best news: the guest speaker will be Julia Carpenter, our talented on-air presenter for nearly 20 years at FESTIVAL! Many of you have asked us about Julia's background: What part of England is she from? When did she move to the U.S.? What else does she do at UNC-TV? You may not be aware that Julia has served on the UNC-TV Board of Trustees and that she's currently a producer. The multifaceted Julia will have much to tell us about her roles as producer, reporter, and actress. She is also looking forward to a spirited Q&A, so get your questions ready!
We'll send another reminder next month about this event, and you can RSVP then. For now, please reserve both dates on your calendar: June 27 and November 7.
We're looking forward to seeing everyone soon. Enjoy the spring weather!
NC EastEnders Fan Club Luncheon Recap - November 9
It was a beautiful, crisp fall day when 43 eager North Carolina EastEnders fans gathered for lunch at the Golden Corral in Durham. As usual, we had a private dining room and filled it nearly to capacity. We were thrilled to see so many longtime friends, and it was also gratifying to welcome several newcomers. From what I could tell, the "newbies" fit in immediately, and the event was even more enjoyable thanks to their participation.
Naturally, the first thing on the agenda was food…and lots of it! No one leaves the Golden Corral hungry, and no one leaves it thinner than when they arrived. We're not sure if it was specifically in honor of Claire Meyerhoff or not, but the restaurant currently boasts not one, but three, "Wonderfalls": Chocolate, Sweet Caramel, and White Chocolate. The biggest wonder of all is that several diners made it through the day without a single stain on their white EastEnders tee-shirts.
