ENTERTAINMENT:   Jon Semmes and Friends, the program at the clubhouse last week was a delightful evening.   Know that those of you who were there enjoyed it, and the rest of you missed a nice evening.   Support our Entertainment Committee - they work hard to get enjoyable programs for us.

PIZZA PARTY AND HORSE RACES:   We wish to thank the helpers we had for the Pizza Party.   They are too numerous to mention by name as we don't want to forget anyone.   We couldn't have done it without you!   We hope everyone had a good time.   Thanks for your support.       ---Bud and Mary Porzio

(And we want to thank Bud and Mary for all their hard work  -  it was a "sold-out" crowd.)

PATIO PARTY:   What a super afternoon last Sunday was and a large crowd enjoyed the music - "Sax At The Beach".   The patio was full and a large number of people sat around the pool and enjoyed the beautiful weather, too.   A lovely lunch was served by the committee.   Ellie Lambiotte was Chair and her committee consisted of Rae Burmaster, Carol Weber, Connie Wall, Gerry Coleman, Judy Spears, Louise Eichenlaub, and Angie Richards.   Don Lambiotte and Tom Weber did a lot for the clean-up.   Thanks to all of you - know the afternoon was enjoyed by all who attended.

THOUGHTS:   Our Round Table Chair still needs some of you to volunteer to chair some events.   Without chair people, events get cancelled (as with the Pot Luck Dinner on November 10).   Please give George Agricola some help and become a Chair for events that still need help.   You'll always get all the help you need.       ---SJB
