Lunch Break
12:00pm - 1:00 pm on Saturday, April 20, 2019
Pat Stubblefield and her volunteers work hard to plan and prepare a hot lunch every month for our WAGS Meeting. We will update you with more details as soon as we know what will be served.  However, we can assure you that the meal, as always, will be tasty and include an entree salad, dessert, and beverage.
The lunch break is a great time to trade family history stories, fellowship with other genealogists, and enjoy a good meal.  You can brown bag it, pick up lunch nearby, or order delivery, but why not save all that hassle, when for only a $5 suggested donation, you can have a hot lunch ready and waiting for you?  
Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 17th so we know how many to plan for.  To make your reservation, email our Hospitality Chair, Miriam Benell: dandmbenell@earthlink.net.
