CELLAR DWELLERS – Friday, January 19 – 6:00 pm
Cellar Dwellers will kick off 2018 with a "bubbly" party.  The party will be hosted by Jane Nero,.  Guests are asked to bring prosecco, Champagne, or other sparkling wines.  The party will be held at the Le Jardin Clubhouse, 111 S. Monroe Street.  Please RSVP to janenero@comcast.net.  Limited to 30 guests. 


We need volunteers to host upcoming events. 
Cellar Dwellers is one of the most enjoyable events in our neighborhood.  It is an evening of wine-tasting, good food and fun conversation.  The host typically provides appetizers for the guests and will choose the wine category for the guests to bring.  Sometimes, the host provides the drinks and the guests bring the appetizers.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting it in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.   Please contact Jane Nero at janenero@comcast.net, if you would like to host an upcoming Cellar Dwellers.  Pick a month that works with your schedule, and let’s get the calendar filled up!

FLICK FLACK MOVIE CLUB – Tuesday, January 9 – 7:00 pm
Christy and Mike Begien will host in January.  They have picked the movie “Lady Bird” which is currently playing at the movie theaters.  This movie is getting all sorts of great reviews.  Please come join us for enjoyable get-together.  Please RSVP to Christy Begien cbegien@me.com.

We get together and discuss a movie that we watch independently before the meeting.  The host picks the movie in advance and provides the beverages and light snack for the meeting.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting it in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.  Movie options can be current movies in the theater or movies that can be downloaded and watched at home.  New members are always welcome.  Please contact Jane Nero at janenero@comcast.net if you are interested in joining. 

Thursdays at 2:00 PM
Sue Ast coordinates the mahjong group that plays on Thursdays.  Beginners, including newcomers who have never played before, are more than welcome to come join in the fun!  If you are interested in playing, please email Sue at sue@larrysueast.com.

First Wednesday of the month - 5:30 pm 
Nancy Austin will be hosting this at her house.  She thought it might be a good idea for us to have a spot where we can all visit and become more acquainted.  Please let her know if you would like to bring a bottle of wine or an appetizer to share with the group.  Looking forward to a Holiday CHEER opportunity!  Please RSVP to Nancy at:  nancy@porchlightgroup.com.
