Time to chat before summer sweeps us off in all directions.  We will have a grill with hamburgers, vegeburgers and hotdogs.  WHAT CAN YOU BRING TO SHARE?  Salads   Sides  Desserts  Chips…..Condiments….Finger Food  Non-Alcoholic Drinks.  We have plates, napkins, cups, cutler.  Do Bring a Folding Chair or Blanket for Sitting.  Please let us know what you will bring – food or activity – through a quick email to:  Bonnie Cain, bonniejcain@gmail.com or if you need a ride contact Mary Rojas, m.h.rojas@verizon.net
