Coffee Field Trip
When: Wednesday, June 16, 6:30 pm

Wednesday, June 16, with a take out dinner in hand. We will eat
the picnic tables and then begin the bocce games promptly at 7PM.
It doesn't get dark until late, so there will be plenty of time for
playing. There are two courts so please bring your bocce set for the
second court. We usually go out for desset afterwards, perhaps

the one time Lunardi's, on Cortona Drive at Altia. You can go up

time to park and wait in line (or buy ahead) for tickets. After
the movie, it is back to Randi's house for Chinese food and Cosmos

a fun Girls' Night Out!!
Also, plan ahead for Randi's meeting in July. She is going to have a
cosmetics/clothes swap where everyone should bring those cosmetics that
have never been used (not your shade of lipstick, etc) and clothes that
