Meeting Agenda For December 2016

December 6 - Travel Tips and Stocking Stuffers

Most of you will remember Abby Stokes and how much we enjoyed her presentations in the past. Well, it’s been awhile but we’ll have her again for this meeting. Those of you who haven’t 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 don’t come home to a smartphone bill that’ll 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 don’t-miss meeting!

December 13 - Dining at Two Guys from Italy

What 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, wouldn’t that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100 each time we have a dining event, with two events we’d have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell me, what’s better than that?

If you don’t have a flyer, contact Jeff Kent at jeffersonskent@gmail.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 not’t 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 you’ll be able to join us.

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d 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 wouldn’t be there!
