Spring Meeting and Music By Donna Groom - Sub-Dean (email@example.com)
Once again I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the next meeting. Our April meeting will be on the 28th 2014 at St. Anthony’s Chapel (Troy Hill) 1704 Harpster Street Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15212. The phone number there is 412.231.2994. The Chapel web site, www.saintanthonyschapel.org, has detailed directions from nearly all points.
This month we’ll be able to enjoy recitals by both Jeremy Jelinek and Daniel Ficarri. That will be a nice treat to look forward to after our meeting and meal.
Speaking of which, Chef Cindy Bowen is preparing a Spring Celebration with herbed spring chicken, broccoli soufflé, brandied carrots, whipped mashed potatoes, family style salad, rolls and butter. Desert will be lemon cake with berries and cream.
Don’t forget to let Suzie Gilliland know if you will be attending by April 21st with either online reservation at www.pitago.org or mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My Spring Poem
to my dear friends
Spring has finally sprung
And we’ve only just begun
To sing in every tongue
The songs we’ve always sung
And count ourselves among
God’s children old and young
Never come to a Chapter meeting before? Worried that it's stuffy and you won't know anyone? Don't know why you should come?
Be just and fear not! The Pittsburgh AGO Chapter is a friendly group that starts off the meeting with chit-chat around 6PM and has a wonderful buffet dinner (feel free to get a second helping!) every month (only $15). Dieting? Skip the dinner and come for the program; it's free and a benefit to you as a member.
Reservations are required if you're coming to the dinner; you can make one at www.pitago.org (the Dinner Reservations link above/left) or contact email@example.com if you need more information or to make your reservation.
Do something different in the New Year and come to the meeting - you'll be glad you did!
