You will find a variety of fixins including multiple bread options, luncheon meats – turkey, ham, roast beef, pastrami, etc., cheeses and condiments. Our team generally also offers either chicken or tuna salad along with an assortment of veggies – tomatoes, lettuce, onions, and pickles. Fun surprises may also include chips or even a few Girl Scout cookies to complement the feast. Did we also mention that PB & J is always an option?


The meal is often a highlight of the day where guests can gather around and rave about their great adventures. Expect a feast! Anticipate entrees such as grilled rib-eyes, delicious salmon, Mexican-style burritos, barbeque chicken or mouthwatering spaghetti with garlic bread. You will likely see sides including rice pilaf, baked potatoes, grilled vegetables and roasted asparagus. Are your mouths watering yet?
