Early November 2023


Greetings and Salutations members of the ARPCA,

Hard as it may be to believe, the holiday season is fast approaching us once again.  A time for family, friends, and celebration.  Basking in the warmth of companions helps us to ward off the growing chill of Fall and Winter.  The Holiday Party and a lunch with the PTC at the Kaufman Tavern are great opportunities to enjoy the company of other ARPCA members.

If you’d like to mix a little shopping with your socializing, the Women of ARPCA have a great upcoming event at Diamonds Direct.  On the topic of shopping, the Mart is fairly brimming with cars, tires, wheels, and even floor mats looking for new homes.

As always details and links are below.

ARPCA – Holiday Party 2023 – November 18th

Occupying the former Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Station, the Grand Concourse represents an unmatched dining experience and a historical excursion.

There will be a sit-down dinner with a choice of five entrees including Filet Mignon, Salmon Rockefeller, Chicken Milano, Vegetarian Ravioli, or Vegan Roasted Vegetables with Coconut Rice.
