Greetings on this gorgeous day, DL Friends!

The group present at our last gathering decided to move this month's second meeting to next Wednesday, June 29, at 7pm at Cinco 5. (This is one of those months where there are only 4 Tuesdays but 5 Wednesdays.)

Hope to see you then ~
Kathy

ps: Enjoy the first full day of summer today, and the full Strawberry Moon (actually full last night, the first night of summer, which won't happen again until 2061 - need I say many of us will likely not see that one?) SAVOR THIS MOMENT!!

Reminder:

We will be meeting tonight, Tuesday, 7pm, at Doc Pierce's.

Note: out next meeting is scheduled for next Wednesday at Cinco 5 (there are 5 Wednesdays this month). We can discuss if we want to keep it there or move it to the last Wednesday.
