November Meeting

In lieu of our regular meeting and program at the library, we will meet on Tuesday, November 11th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Peachtree Cafe, 99 Jeff Davis Road, in Thomaston.(The cafe is very near the intersection of Hwy.19 and Jeff Davis Road.)

If you were an official member as of this past August, you are invited to enjoy the all-you-can-eat buffet (hot bar, salad bar, desserts, etc.) for FREE. If you weren't a current member at that time, you (and other guests) are welcome to attend. The cost per person (non-members) for the buffet is $9.90, which includes drink and taxes.

Please bring at least one non-perishable food item to donate to a local food pantry.

If you're planning to attend, please respond on Facebook, the blog or by email no later than Thursday, Nov. 6th, so we can let the cafe know how many to expect.
