Get Ready for the Super Bowl!
A new social this year will be a Super Bowl party! It will be Saturday, February 3 at the club. The cost is $15 per person but that includes cocktails (beer and wine), dinner, and dessert. Come cheer on our beloved Patriots (hopefully). And it could really interesting if the Minnesota Vikings are in the game because it will be the first time a team is playing at their home field. The hall will be decorated with our team paraphenalia. Come help us prepare for the great game that is the Super Bowl and join us for fun and merriment.

And while you are on the Socials page, scroll down and checkout the recap of the 2017 Halloween party. It was great fun! Visit Socials to get details and sign up.
