some activities that allow
you to have a good time. But that
doesn’t mean you
can’t take the opportunity
to ask a question or two at these fun events. We have a picnic each
usually at Mill Hollow. The club provides hamburgers and hot dogs, while
members bring side dishes.
The club enjoys a night at the theater when we buy out the house at Workshop
Players Theater in Amherst. All
who attend always have a good time.
Members spend all year collecting items that they can bring to the Christmas
party for the Chinese Raffle. Here’s
another event where members share their
