On October 11, we will be holding a dinner on the patio at SaddleBrooke One with a delicious menu including minestrone soup; turkey wraps with swiss cheese, tarragon aioli, lettuce, tomato and onion or beef and havarti wraps with horseradish, lettuce, tomato and onion; brownies and non-alcoholic beverages. Cost is $15.85 plus tip and tax for a total of $20 per person. There will be a no host bar.

The SaddleBrooke Winds and Strings will be serenading us before the dinner is served so come early to hear the lovely music.

Mark your calendars for our first potluck of the season which will take place on November 10 at 5:00 p.m. in the SaddleBrooke One Activity Center.
