SAM Men’s Breakfast Club

SAM is sponsoring a Men’s Breakfast Club beginning January 3rd.

The Club will meet every Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. at Elie’s Family Restaurant, 4102 Monona Drive. Stop in for coffee and/or breakfast, dutch treat, and enjoy each others company.

Monthly Luncheons Are the Last Wednesday Through May 

Monthly potlucks are planned for the following Wednesdays: February 28th, March 28th, and April 25th. We will conclude our potluck season on May 30th when the Social Hall will literally become a zoo! So mark your calendars so you don’t miss any of the fun.  Senior Adult Ministry meets at 12:00 pm in the Social Hall. Our featured speakers will be announced in our newsletter, and in the Column. Please bring your table service and a dish to pass.
