A remind for those who have already purchased tickets:

Annual Dinner, Friday June 10th

A remind for those who have already purchased tickets:

Once again, OCHS is hosting a fun, entertaining, and informative annual dinner that you're sure to enjoy.  This year, we're featuring the always interesting, enlightening, and sometimes a bit irreverent author Jim Washburn on the topic of the Counterculture of Orange County over the last 50 years or so.  

Information about the dinner has already been sent by email to those purchasing tickets. But to recap, the dinner will be Mexican buffet style with a social hour (and silent auction) starting at 5 pm, dinner at 6 pm, and the program beginning at 7 pm.  

Our ticket purchase deadline was May 27th.  Due to restaurant planning, tickets had to have been purchased in advance. We can't accommodate walk-ins, sorry.  (If you have any questions, please call 714 543-8282 or email ochsdinner@gmail.com.)
