July Lunch Social & Family Swimming Party

I need to apologize for not keeping up with scheduling socials lately. For our new members who may not have had a chance to meet anyone yet I wanted to give you two chances to come to something in July. I know that summers are a hard time to get together because everyone is very busy so hopefully you will be able to make it to one or both of the activities.

North Area Lunch Social
Wednesday, July 13, 2011
11:30 a.m. in the Food Court of the Layton Hills Mall
Look for the pink heart balloon to find us.

Since I am in charge of North area socials we are meeting in Layton which is central to our members who live North of Bountiful. Although this is a north social because of the location, EVERYONE is welcome regardless of where you live. Feel free to bring your children if you want to. There are a lot of food options in the food court. Everything from Chick-Fil-A, pizza, Mexican, Chinese, Subway, & pretzels. I hope to see you there.

We are also going to have our 4th Annual Young Survivor Sisters Family Swimming Party. My neighbor has offered the use of her pool again this year.

Saturday, July 30, 2011
1 to 3 p.m.
Roy, Utah

This is a family party so bring your spouse or significant other & kids or come by yourself if you prefer. It is a potluck so bring something to munch on. Come swim or just hang out and talk. The pool has a diving board and a slide. We have had a lot of fun at the past swim parties so we would love to have everyone join us this year. I will set up a shade for those who may not be feeling very well and who just want to relax and talk.

Please RSVP to me, Candace at 801-732-2707 or email me directly at candytatton@yahoo.com. Please do not reply to this email because that will create a lot of messages that not everyone needs to see. My cell phone is 801-628-8091 if you need directions on the day of the event.
