Evening Book Group – September

 

Being Mortal by Atul Gawande

We will be trying a new restaurant for our Wednesday, September 27, Evening Book Group.  We will be at Red Brick Ale House, 3832 Bayshore Road, North Cape May at 6pm.  The easiest way to find it is to head to the ferry and turn right on Bayshore.  The restaurant is on the left side.  Several members have eaten there and like the food.  Management has agreed to separate checks.

Since this is a new venue, please contact Mary Jane Slugg at 609-884-7041 or shoresluggs@aol.com by Monday, September 25, if you will be coming.

ANNUAL PICNIC AT THE ZOO

OUR ANNUAL PICNIC AT THE CAPE MAY COUNTY ZOO

Once again, our AAUW Cape May County Annual Picnic will be at the Cape May County Park and Zoo on Route 9 in Cape May Court House.  We have reserved Pavilion D on Tuesday, June 20.  This pavilion is near last year’s pavilion.  Mary Jane Slugg will supply paper products.  Everyone should bring a dish large enough to share.

Expect to arrive between 11am and noon.  We will begin eating at 12:30. The Pavilion needs to be cleaned up afterwards and we need to be out by 4 pm.

We are asking for a donation of $5 from each person to cover the cost of renting the pavilion.  Any additional monies will go into our scholarship fund.

The pavilion includes 4 tables with benches but that probably won’t be enough so please bring a folding chair just in case.  Also, any card tables or folding tables would be useful.
