While we may be closed, there certainly is plenty to do to get ready for our grand reopening scheduled for this November. With more than 300 events hosted annually at White Point, our Event Services Team are definitely looking forward to getting back to hosting events in our amazing new spaces in the Lodge. What has been incredibly encouraging since our fire, are the number of calls and bookings being made for Fall 2012 when we reopen and well beyond! We’re busy planning retreats, reunions, corporate meetings, association conferences and yes, weddings.
When we reopen, in addition to Lakeside Hall, in the new Main Lodge we’ll continue having our main event room (just like our former Atlantic Conference Centre) which overlooks the ocean and beach, not to worry! This time around though, the space will be able to be split into 3 rooms, which will mean more flexibility when planning events. Plus we’ll have a mezzanine level meeting room with views of the tidal river on one side and the ocean on the other! The new Lodge will also boast a lot more windows with oceanfront view planes from the Dining Room too – and all South facing, imagine the sunsets we’ll be enjoying.
Over the past month, while the design details were being worked on, we’ve been reviewing and have created NEW Banquet and Great Day Meetings Menus. Though you will still find old favourites like Cedar Planked Salmon and Top Sirloin of Beef, Chef Alan Crosby has included options like Chicken Scallopini with Peppered Edam and Tomato Fennel Sauce, Lobster Risotto Croquettes with Tomato Concasse and Tarragon Aioli and Grilled Polenta with Shitake and Crimini Mushroom Ragu, Roasted Shallots, and Oven Dried Tomatoes and Shaved Parmesan (*sigh* hungry yet?). Plus based on feedback received in the past, we’ve introduced more options, like choosing the salads and platters on your buffet dinner, or choosing your own working lunch inclusions. Don’t worry, we’ve kept our popular “Maritimer” working lunch, featuring fish cakes, sausage and sauerkraut (a South Shore treat for sure!), and expanded our menu to include Kids’ Stuff and Boxed Lunches.
New in our line-up as well is our Executive Meal Plan Package. Enjoy making your own selections from our Dining Room Menus, themed coffee breaks, infused water in your meeting room and a welcome cocktail on arrival. Of course, the beachside Bonfires are included for every gathering!
