Agenda For December 2016
- Travel Tips and Stocking Stuffers
of you will remember Abby Stokes and how much we enjoyed
her presentations in the past. Well, its been awhile
but well have her again for this meeting. Those of you
who havent seen her before will surely enjoy her presentation
and make use of the information she gives us.
Abby talks about precautions you should take so you
dont come home to a smartphone bill thatll ruin
your vacation after-glow. Learn about what great apps there
are for your smartphone and tablet to help plan, navigate,
and enjoy your trip. She has also handpicked some particularly
helpful gadgets to make your travels easier and more streamlined.
There will be other useful gadgets explained, just in time
for holiday gift-giving.
Abby is the author of the now updated and revised,
the user-friendliest, most reassuring, jargon-free, smartest,
and most comprehensive nuts-and-bolts guide for seniors, who
happen to be the fastest-growing demographic among social
networks: Is This Thing On?
This is definitely a dont-miss meeting!
December 13 - Dining
at Two Guys from Italy
a great time to get together and take a break from the hustle
and bustle of December. We will dine at Two Guys from Italy
again as it is one of our favorite restaurants. As you
know, it is just down the way from the Granada Pavilion, using
the same parking lot. We earn a generous 20% in cash
for the meals served. Hope you can join us - offer is available
all day, which means you can come for lunch or dinner.
Thanks to all who have supported our dining events through
the year, it has helped our treasury while you had a pleasant
time and filled your tummies. We will continue to keep you
informed of the schedule of restaurants in the new year.
Please note: Dining events will
be planned for the fourth Tuesday from January on. That will
accommodate the board of directors meeting changing to the
second Tuesday each month.
Look forward to seeing you. Remember to invite friends
and family to come as well. Most
get there between 5 & 6 p.m.
There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury,
assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite
someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldnt
that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100
each time we have a dining event, with two events wed
have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell
me, whats better than that?
If you dont have a flyer,
contact Jeff Kent at email@example.com to get one.
It is important to have a copy of
the appropriate flyer for these occasions.
It is always available, even if you are nott able to
get to a meeting to pick it up. Please ask for it, either
by e-mail or a phone call. The e-mail addresses and phone
numbers of board members are on page 2 of the newsletter,
so take advantage of that and ask for a flyer when you think
youll be able to join us.
If you have a favorite restaurant
youd like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson
Kent know about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy
to work with any location which welcomes groups. By the way,
it is surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate
in this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers
who otherwise wouldnt be there!
