An opportunity to play in something other than whites! In fact, you can wear whatever your little heart desires. But you must still pay TWO BUCKS!


The Single Boomers Club joined us on September 11th. There were 22 of them together with us for a total of about 50. A lively bunch, one of them, Barbara Baker, won a bottle of wine by firing a bowl into the clown’s mouth. We enjoyed various side dishes and sweets that topped off the bar-becue cooking by the able Rob Lenahan.


Become an Assistant. Tony Lachowicz has been in charge of these Demo Day events for some time and would like someone to become his co-chair with a view to taking responsibility for future events. Please con-tact Tony (he’s in the Green Book) and let him know you are interested and willing.
