December Meeting
When: Thursday, December 12, 6:30 pm
Where: Marilyn's House - 6452 Spring Meadow Court
What: Our Annual Christmas Party & Potluck
Bring:  Potluck item, $20 "Something Floral" gift, and your holiday spirit

If you haven't already done so, RSVP Marilyn as to what you will be bringing:  main dishes, appetizers, and salads are still needed.

The theme this year is "Something Floral".......could go in your family room, kitchen, bathroom, garden.....or even on your back!  So be creative!  (Robin is hoping for "homemade" although many of us have nixed that idea.)  Target price = $20

Marilyn sent me the following link with directions to her house:

Since most of us have been to Merrilee's "old" house in the Meadowlands, you can start in the middle of the directions at:
    ...turn left onto Meadowlands Lane. Proceed to the top of the hill and turn right onto Grand Meadow. Turn left at the next street onto Royal Meadow and continue past the first court on your right. Turn right onto SPRING MEADOW COURT (the second court on your right) and proceed to 6452 (the third house on the left that faces the court)

Happy Hour.....Sally

December Happy Hour

Well, the Sharks have another home game on Thursday December 5th, so I think we will go the other direction, to the Plant and Applebees, 51 Curtner Ave (at Monterey Highway), 3-6PM.  They have 1/2 price appetizers, except for the big platters, and $4 drinks.  Plus you can do a little shopping at Target or Off Broadway or the other 58 stores (
Here is the menu for food and drinks:

It will be a great way to kick off  the holidays, like we need an excuse to lift one and enjoy our LM friends!
