September Meeting
What: Cranium & Cravings
When:  Thursday, September 20, 7:15pm
Where:  Ruth's house

Ruth will be hosting this month's meeting.  She says, "Invite everyone to bring desserts if they want...but not to stress
about it.  I'll have a few desserts myself and coffee, tea, port and wine.  The scheduled activity is Cranium (a game involving
Pictionary/Charades/Trivia/Name That Tune).  We'll break up into teams and give it a go."


Next Sunday is the Beach Brunch at Capitola Sand Castle Contest.  Kathy has heard from the following families--

Castagnolis--Banana Bread
Roesslers--Juice, & paper goods

If you still wish to go please call me & let her know.
If she has forgotten anyone please let her know.
If you know what you are bringing please let her know.
It was decided at Bunko that everyone will bring their own hot beverage... coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever. You can even purchase coffee at the beach at Zelda's!
Meet at 9:30 near Lifeguard Tower #3...remember bring your own chairs etc...we'll be in the sand!

Shirley wrote, "At coffee on Sunday we talked about a possible 2002 date for Pinecrest.  You can make reservations very early now, and people are busy, so it behooves us to set a date.  We were thinking of the week of July 6th."  Let Shirley know how this works for your family.
