CELLAR DWELLERS FUTURE EVENTS                                                                                                  
Summer is approaching and it is a great time to host.  Please consider hosting this fun evening. 

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 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!

CHERRY CREEK EAST SINGLES – WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20 - 5:30 pm, Chopper’s Sports Grill
We’ve noticed that there are quite a few single residents in our beautiful neighborhood and want to start a group for these folks to meet and mingle. This is not intended to be a dating event!  Please email drjudithfl@aol.com to reserve your spot!

FLICK FLACK MOVIE CLUB – May 23 - 7:00 pm
Last month we enjoyed listening to Fran and Barry Lazarus share their experience as competitors on The Amazing Race.   It was such a delight to hear about qualifying and competing on a reality television show, and all the fun things that happened during the show.  Thank you Fran and Barry for such a fun evening!

If you love to watch movies, this is a great way to watch movies you may never have heard of before.  We have a great discussion and pass along other movie recommendations.  Flick Flack members get together quarterly to discuss a movie that we watch independently before the meeting.  The host picks the movie in advance and provides the beverages and light snack.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting it in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.  Movie options can include movies currently 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. 

MAHJONG - Thursdays at 2:00 pm
Sue Ast coordinates the mahjong group.  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 contact Sue Ast at sue@larrysueast.com.
