JUNE POTLUCK LUNCH CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
Saturday, June 11, 2022
Starting at 11:30
Club Room, ParkView Building, Asbury Methodist Village

Heather Reichardt, branch vice president for programs, has sent an email invitation to our annual YEAR-END CELEBRATION that previews several Fall celebrations recognizing the Branch’s 50th Anniversary!!!  Yes!  1972-2022.

This is a great opportunity to get together IN PERSON, share a meal and reminisce about the long and wonderful history of our branch. Anniversaries are also a great time to look toward the future. If you bring a friend, we will all get to broaden our circle of friends and meet potential new members. Guests do not need to bring a dish!

If your invitation got lost, just send a note to Heather (hjr1234[at]gmail[dot]com) letting her know your expected plans and she will send a map and directions to the event.
