IMPORTANT CHANGE STARTING WITH THE AUGUST 14th LUNCHEON

The deadline for absence notification or bringing guests will be:

 WEDNESDAY NOON BEFORE 
OUR MONDAY MEETINGS

(it’s OK to notify early for July if you can)

This is permanent for all regular meetings.  

Ladies Day luncheons (June and December) are not included.

This change from the current Thursday noon deadline is necessary because food for our meeting is ordered on Wednesday and our expected attendance number is required at that time. 

The email address and phone number for notifications remain the same:

             sirbr8attendance@outlook.com     or     925-901-4826

Please update your calendars, reminder notes, and copy of the 2017 Membership Roster to reflect the new deadline day and time. 

Thank you for your understanding. 
Bill Peterson, Attendance Secretary
