Late June news…

Our next party will be our 4th of July Round Robin on Saturday, July 4th from 12-3 pm. This is a pot luck party. The club will supply hamburger and hotdogs and drinks (seltzer, beer, wine) and a few other things, but if you attend, please bring a salad of some type or a side dish. If you are not sure what to bring, please ask Lynn Patterson.

The ball machine is available to rent for $20 an hour. Please let Karen know when you want to use it so she can make sure it is charged, available and not locked in the shed.
