Ladies, we will meet-up on Friday, at Panera from 1-3 p.m.

As for meeting up the day after Thanksgiving (11/28). I never do myself but a few have mentioned they would be interested. Life happens …please let others know if the S&B meet-up is in your plans. I would hate to see one person left sitting alone at the table.

Holiday Luncheon – Friday, December 5th, 1 p.m.

HOLIDAY LUNCHEON 2014Ladies,

Uno’s is great about meeting the dietary requests of those who have requested it over the years. So, if you prefer an entrée salad, (vegetarian or with chicken), a burger, or their gluten-free pizza let me know as soon as possible. Soon, I will be meeting with Pat to complete the menu.

We will have appetizers, soup, salad, thin crust cheese pizza & dessert.

Starting Friday I will have a sign-up sheet and start collecting for the luncheon. Payment needs to be made in advance.

I look forward to celebrating and hope all of you can attend.
