Haviland Happenings, March 5, 2015

We have some people to thank this (and every) week:

Jacquie Dangle for organizing the tremendous Hav-A-Laugh Comedy Night. We haven’t laughed so hard since…ever. Francois Weber was particularly, gut-bustlingly funny. Jacquie, we can’t wait for your next project – Hav-A-Glass Wine Tasting, announced below.

Teresa McCabe for organizing the Bridge Luncheon Club Fundraiser for sorely need Club updates. And thanks to Teresa’s extensive team of volunteers: Ken, Linda, Diane, Ray, Norma Lee, Lennie, Irene, Carol, Adele, and all the people who donated food – you’re all stars. The Havilland Club thanks you!

Thanks to Ray Gallant for signing up to do a $5 Friday. Ray will be preparing his infamous seafood chowder Smile Smile The cost will be $5 per member as usual but because of the extra cost it will be $10 for non-members.
