    HRM entree Luncheon series hosted by UMES HRM students

    Tickets now on sale 

    PRINCESS ANNE, Md.-(Jan. 23, 2012)  Tickets are now on sale for a luncheon series on select Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays over the spring semester at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. 

    Served at noon in the Bailey Thomas Room of the Richard A. Henson Center, the gourmet meals feature an appetizer, entrée and dessert prepared by the students and faculty of the university's Hotel and Restaurant Management Program.  Advanced tickets are required.

    "Entrees are selected from a wide range of seafood, beef, chicken, pork and lamb dishes to please the varied palettes of our guests," Dr. Ernest Boger, chair of the HRM program at UMES, said. 

    Last year, he said, a variation of the entrée for the UMES Gala was tested at one of the lunches.  "You might unknowingly be in for a special treat."

    Participation in events such as the luncheon series, the upcoming Celebrity Gala and the spring Dinner Theatre, "help our students gain valuable banquet production and service experience in real-life settings," he added.

    The lunches are on February 6, 8, 10, 13 and 15; March 9, 12, 14 and 16; April 2, 4, 6 and 30; and May 2 and 4.  Tickets are $12 per person and can be purchased in person only, Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Richard A. Henson Center, Room 2100, until tickets are sold out.  Check or money order is made payable to UMES.  No cash sales. 

    For more information, call 410-651-6563.
