Pre-register AND pre-pay for the Thanksgiving Luncheon

As we prepare for our annual Thanksgiving lunch on Thursday, November 21, we ask that guests pre-register and pre-pay for your Thanksgiving lunch. If you have already had your license scanned into the Raptor visitor system, we ask that you stop by the UC office to pre-register and pre-pay for your lunch. Adult meals are $3.50. Please bring exact cash/change or check payable to Park Hill Food Service. Pre-register and pre-pay today to avoid long check-in lines on the day of the Thanksgiving lunch!
