Calendar and Flyers: Attached is the July Calendar and Walking Club Schedule. Please note there are many activities coming up next month. I have attached a few supplementary flyers to help explain a few of the activities. For example: What is Juke Box Jive???? Lori Taft has helped explain… See the attached flyer. What is the Technology Workshop? See the attached flyer, as presented by Senior Neighbors. This will be a six week Drop-in Course, with each week offering a 20 minute lesson, and 30 minutes dedicated to your questions. Bring in your phones, laptops, Kindles, etc. Stay posted for more details regarding a list of topics to be presented.
FUN-D-RAISER: Captain Alan Littlefair, is once again offering a cruise on the Sailboat “DESIRE.” Unfortunately, we received short notice regarding the date of the sale. So, while tickets are waiting for our license from the State of Michigan, we want to get the word out so you can prepare to purchase your chance to win a three hour Sailing Tour out of Saugatuck for you and a friend. For the 8 people who sailed last year, it was a smashing success!!! This year’s sail will be in the afternoon from 4:00-7:00 on Wednesday, July 26th. We will keep you posted on when tickets will be available for purchase. See the attached flyer for more information. Cost is $25.00.
It sounds as though we are in for another warm and dry weather pattern. Please stay hydrated, and safe!
