SUMMER BARBEQUE AND MEMBER SLIDE SHOW
Saturday, July 19 --
6:00 to 10:00 P.M.

Instead of our regular meeting at the Library, we're planning a
terrific summer evening of park fun, a barbeque
(entre/drinks catered, desserts brought by members), swimming
for the kids with a lifeguard present, and about 90 minutes
of members' favorite slides -- the cream of the crop. Those
interested in showing slides should contact a board member at the
next meeting to get on the list. We can probably accommodate about
25 members this way. Members' families and significant others are
most welcome to come enjoy the park activities, pool, food, and
slides. (Will be at a local Woodlands park facility to be announced)
