Luncheon at Michie Tavern

Tuesday, January 20, 2015, 11:30 a.m. at Michie Tavern (which is near Monticello, on Rte. 53)

Cost: $23.00. Checks must be received by January 13, 2015. For more information, email cvillenewcomersinfo@gmail.com

On a cold winter's day, you can savor the delectable food and delightful ambiance of historic Michie Tavern while enjoying the warm company of Newcomers Club members and guests. The buffet at the tavern will offer southern fried chicken, hickory-smoked pulled pork barbecue, marinated baked chicken, whole baby beets, mashed potatoes, green beans, biscuits and more.

The guest speaker will be Tom Burford, also known as “Professor Apple.” His family has grown fruit in Central Virginia since the early 1700s. After working as a fruit nurseryman for 40 years, Mr. Burford closed his business to devote time to bringing heirloom apples back to prominence. He has authored several books on apples and his latest, Apples of North America, will be available for purchase at this luncheon.

Weather Policy

If the Albemarle County Schools are closed due to bad weather, any Newcomers Club activity scheduled for that day will be postponed or cancelled.
