What: "Retirement" Party

Our June meeting will have a Retirement Theme:

With the weather being so hot, I think we will have a Ice Cream Sundae Party.  Janis Gerlinger and Robin Nevoli are hosting the meeting and will provide the ice cream, bowls and spoons.  If you are planning on attending please bring the topping of your choice.  See you at 7:15.
Happy Summer!
