SAM May Luncheon

It’s No Joke—Messiah will be a Zoo on May 30th

We will share lunch and fellowship together at noon. Then everyone will pitch in together to clean up Social Hall in record time.  Why?  Some of the animals from the Henry Vilas Zoo are coming for a visit!

Since they all have special food diets, it is imperative that we put all food away and clean the tables so no trace of food is present when the animals arrive.   The presentation is slated for 1:00 pm so that means we need to finish the meal, including dessert, by 12:40 so we have 15 minutes for everyone to make a record setting clean-up of Social Hall.

SAM On-Going Events:

SAM to Offer New Lunch Opportunity for Women

Janet Alfonso has developed a lunch program for women called “Let’s Do Lunch Bunch.” They will meet on the second Wednesday of the month starting at 11:30 am.   Sign up for the luncheons will be on the kiosk. The group will go to area restaurants that take individual checks. This will be a nice way to go to a variety of restaurants.  For more information, contact Janet at (608) 221-1040 or by email alfonso_janet@yahoo.com
