No General Meeting in July
See You August 6th
Howdy! This year we are in for a special treat. The Gheres will be smoking up the best Texas style brisket you have ever tasted. Trust me, I am from Texas, and I have already sampled their melt-in-the-mouth brisket.
To join in, look through your cookbook for Texas Vegetables, Salads, and Desserts to complement authentic Texas Bar-B-Q.
To add to our feasting, we'll take in some Country & Western music, and the Labrados will teach us a Line Dance. So, put on your Levis, step into some dancing boots and come out for great time.
We do need a few volunteers. If you have a pickup to help us get tables and chairs from St. Paul’s and can help set up and or tear down please call me. It would be great to have at least 4 people.
We also need 2 people to help with a couple of Texas style games for the entire family.
Please call me if you can help: 621-1529. Thanks, Gayle Copeland
Picnic Registration forms will be in the August and September Newsletters.
