RSVPs are required. Please send a formal RSVP to email@example.com no later than Monday, May 6th so we have an accurate count for proper reservations. People without an RSVP may still attend but are not guarenteed a seat. We will meet around 6:45 p.m. and be seated around 7:00 p.m.
May's Membership Meeting/Potluck
Saturday, May 13th will mark the second Member's Potluck of the year. As in the past, the club will provide the main dish as well as assorted sodas and water. To encourage a variety of items we ask members with:
Last Names A-H, please bring a side dish
Last Names I-R, please bring a dessert,
Last Names S-Z, please bring an appetizer or a salad.
The location for the potluck and meeting will be Bob Murphy and Robert Gilbreath condo complex located at 1029 E 8th Avenue, Denver. Dinner will start promptly at 5:00 pm and the monthly meeting will start at 6:00 pm.
May Book Club News
Due to last month's cancellation, the FRB Book Club will be discussing both April and May's book selections on Monday, May 20th.
We will gather at 6:30 to discuss April's selection, Mother of Sorrows, for anyone interested in doing so. If you don't want to join in that discussion, you can socialize and dine until around 7:00pm when the discussion of World War Z will begin.
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War is a 2006 post-apocalyptic horror novel by Max Brooks. It is a follow-up to his 2003 book, The Zombie Survival Guide. Rather than a grand overview or narrative, World War Z is a collection of individual accounts in the form of first-person anecdotes.
For location information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer Picnic/Pool Party Announced!!
Join your fellow Bears Saturday, July 13, for our annual FRB Summer Picnic and Pool Party. As in years past, the club will provide hamburgers, hot dogs and brats, along with condiments and beverages, to include cold water, assorted sodas and a cold keg of beer.
Members are encouraged, but not required, to bring appetizers, side dishes or desserts, but please do not bring anything that will melt or spoil in the heat. The cost this year will be $10 for members and $20 for non-members. We will be ready to take reservations soon, so look for details as summer approaches.
And finally, a big Thank You to Lou Delucia, who has volunteered to step up and coordinate this very popular event. He needs five volunteers to help him setup on July 13, and five to help tear it all down. As incentive, those who volunteer will be able to attend the event free of charge! Contact Lou at email@example.com to see how you can help.
