Hello Ladies!

We are rounding the corner on the Golf Tournament - Friday, August 8th.  The committee has been doing a fabulous job of putting this event together.  If you know anyone who golfs, please let them know that this is a fun event and you don't have to be a great golfer.  You don't even need to have golfing buddies - we can hook them up with a foursome.  It's not too late to donate a prize for the raffle.  If your company has swag, ask them if they would be willing to donate some.  We will be happy to get them a letter for their tax records. 

The date for the Tri-Parish Picnic has been set for Sunday, September 7th, at Amos Lake Beach Club in Preston.  We will begin with mass at 12:30 and must be cleaned up and cleared out by 5:00pm sharp.  The parishes are supplying the burgers and hot dogs.  Parishioners are being asked to bring a side dish or dessert.  This will be fun for the whole family!

Speaking of swimming, Debbie Shaffer has volunteered her home for a Columbiettes (ladies only) pool party!  We had so much fun at the get together for Trish, and a pool party is a wonderful idea!  Thanks, Deb, for offering your home.  Deb's address is 31 Beechwood Terrace, Griswold.  The date is Sunday, August 3rd, 12:00-6:00pm.  This will be a complete pot luck, so please bring a dish to share.  I am really looking forward to it and even went bathing suit shopping!  Please let Deb know if you plan to come and what you would like to bring. 

The dream of having a commercial dishwasher in the Church Hall is nearing reality.  Suzy Kenney has been in close contact with Adams Restaurant Supply and I brought the check there today.  We still have a few hurdles to go over - delivery, electric, plumbing, and tables next to it - but we are on our way to eating off of real dishes!!

The next First Degree Ceremony is being moved to Sunday, September 14th at 1:00.  It was originally set for September 7th, but had to be moved to accommodate the Tri-Parish Picnic.

Our Sister Columbiette, Jackie Goddard, was in the hospital at Yale for a heart attack.  The doctors installed three brand new stents and Jackie is now home.  We all wish Jackie a smooth recovery!

Our next meeting is August 4th at 7:00pm.  See you at 6:00pm for Social Hour.
