MONTHLY MEETING: “Summer Solstice ‘Ice Cream’ Social,” Monday, June 17th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom B, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke.  Come and celebrate the arrival of summer at the first of our two semiannual social meetings.  It’s just a few days before the solstice and we’re ready to share some cool treats, provided by the club, to prepare us all for the hot and hotter times ahead.  Members are encouraged to bring their favorite ice cream toppings to share with everyone.  There’ll also be some bottled water to wash down the sweetness.  Along with reports and announcements and monthly short programs, we’ll be officially electing our officers for the new year starting next month.  We’ll also have “open mic” time for anyone to offer short talks about just about anything they think will be of interest.  So mark your calendars and plan to join us.  We’ll be having a cool time in the hot town tonight!
