June potluck location is changed

Patty writes, “There will be a change of location for the June 21st Pot Luck lunch and meeting. The plans had been to be at Debbie Swan’s house. Jessie Adler has graciously invited us to her house instead.

We will gather at 11:30 am with lunch beginning at 12 noon.

If your last name begins with A-M, please bring a main dish or salad and if your last name begins with N-Z, please bring a desert or side.”

For Jessie Adler’s address please call her at 440-543-1885.

Debbie kindly sheltered us in our last Study Group meeting and it was discussed the change to be a bit closer to the Guild and to relieve Debbie from so much hostessing.

Thanks to Jesse for stepping in.
