Clay Aiken – Confusion -102B

If I have learned anything since I started writing this blog, it is that sometimes things just don’t go like you plan.

Last week, I posted an update to a wonderful dinner being hosted by Cookie before the December 8th concert.  She had sent me an e-mail with the information and, I thought…well, easy…I will just copy what she sent me.  Well, neither of us know what happened, but the announcement I posted was old and not an update.  I think I really confused a lot of people!!  All I know is that Cookie and I were both trying to get the information out there.  Because of the inaccurate information, I am posting the latest e-mail from Cookie.

Hi Fans,
Well “Jingle all the Way”…it’s so great to share some time with Clay over the Holidays.  Somehow hearing that wonderful voice singing the Christmas songs we so love just adds to the season!!
You are invited to join fellow fans at The Ship Wreck Pub and Inn in Shippensburg  on  December 8th for buffet style dinner and share lots of fun before the concert.
The event will be in their private banquet room which will open at 4:30PM.
There is no fee to attend, only the cost of the meal which is $22 per person. The entree choices on the buffet are Chicken Cordon Bleu and London Broil along with 3 sides of a side salad, baked potato,corn and desert.Non alcoholic beverages are included.
Your reservation to attend along with payment in full is due by Nov. 20th. There cannot be any refunds after Nov 30th (an easy date to remember) as we will be locked into the count we give the restaurant at that point.You will pick up your tickets at the door on the 8th.
You will have a opportunity to give a voluntary donation at the door which will go to the Fan Fest account.All proceeds from Fan Fest goes directly to The National Inclusion Project each year.  For every $5 donation you will receive a raffle ticket to be used for door prize drawings through out the evening.
There is parking at the restaurant.The Luhr is about 5 minutes away. The festivities will wind down by 7:30PM so everyone will have time to get the venue.
Because everything will be pre-paid you will not need to worry about a tab other than a bar tab when you leave if you have one. (Now guess who will have one of those…LOL)
This event is limited to the first 90 who let me know they want to attend and send me their payment. Remember the deadline to have your reservations “in” and “paid in full” is November 20th.
I will contact everyone with a final count so if anyone wants to bring small trinkets for everyone (as some of you like to do at these events) you will know how many are coming. If anyone is interested in offering something special for a door prize let me know. I am donating items from my private collection, a wonderful Christmas Basket and an additional surprise!!!
Remember the deadline is NOVEMBER 20th!! This event will be closed upon receiving the first 90 “paid”reservations!!
Please mail your payment to:
Diane Knappenberger
40 Oak Dr.
Mt. Wolf, PA 17347

   **********Be sure to include your e- mail address with

  1. My very first time to be in the same room breathing with Live Clay was a JNT play in 2005! I didn't have the best seat and it was in a venue that had ice under the temporary floor. Brrrr! But I was hot hot hot watching him sing LIVE to me! Amazing! I just could not believe I was listening to him LIVE!

  2. I love the early Christmas pictures of Clay. I hope we have some pictures like the first one this season!!

    Thanks for all the information and pictures!!

  3. Love all the pictures of Clay at his Christmas Shows. Like that first one. Sold Out!! Magical words. Makes me even more excited for my concert in Clearwater.

  4. There is nothing like "Christmas Clay" !!! I am very happy and excited to see him live in Detroit at
    that magnificent Fox Theater!!!
