Welcome back! Your social committee met during the summer, and we have been very busy making plans for some new activities, and some old favorites we can’t wait to share with you. We hope these events are things that you will wish to participate in. Please check the dates, times, and keep in mind the RSVP dates where noted. Should you have any questions, please reach out to a member of the social committee. Wishing everyone a great club year.

Ice Cream Love
1490 Hurffville Rd. – Deptford, NJ
We hope you’ll be able to join us for an ice-cream social, 5-8pm. We wanted to support this local business, as they supported us with a donation at our basket fundraiser. The owner is a local West Deptford resident. This is a scheduled pop-up event, so no need to let us know if/when you can make it, but we hope you’ll find some time to stop by and enjoy some ice cream. You need not stay the whole time, or be there at 5:00. Come by when it’s good for you.

Book Club Mtg. (Zoom)
We will be discussing, Midnight Library by Matt Haig (288 pgs.)
RSVP by October 4th to Jody, so you are put on the Zoom invite list.
Between life and death there is a library. When Nora Seed finds herself in the Midnight Library, she has a chance to make things right. Up until now, her life has been full of misery and regret. She feels she has let everyone down, including herself. But things are about to change.

We hope you will be able to join in for a “Pancake/Autumn Breakfast.” I will need a head count to share with the restaurant by October 10th. I will put out a final notice when I know who is planning to attend, so that you are welcome to make carpool arrangements if needed. Each attendee will be responsible for purchasing their own breakfast. We will choose from the menu.
