As usual, Rocky and The Rollers rocked the house last month and we'll just keep the fun going at this month's meeting!
October Meeting: This month will be our Halloween party on October 18th featuring entertainment by Dawn Dinome.
We'll be on the lookout for ghosts, ghouls, and goblins! We're encouraging everyone to wear your "in good taste" costumes and participate in our "Awesome Incognito Look" contests for the best female, best male, best couple, best group and most original costumes. Groups must have least 3 people. You may only enter ONE category, so start trying to decide which category you want to enter and get ready to take home a prize! Costumes are not mandatory, so please feel free to come as yourself! As always, you are welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks. If you are just attending the Halloween party and are not renewing your dues, please line up at the front entrance door. The doors will open around 6:30 PM.
Monthly Volunteers: I appreciate so many of you volunteering to help with our meetings this year. For this year’s volunteers, please be aware that our Vice President, Skip Genco will assign and contact individual volunteers for each meeting. Volunteers who have been assigned for a specific month should come to the meeting at 5:30 pm to help set up. Only those volunteers who have been assigned for the current month will be able to gain access to the room. If your name is not on the list, you will not be able to get early access to the room.
