Unfortunately, the planned bus trip to the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn, Michigan had to be cancelled due to the extremely low turn out. We only had eight people sign up for the trip! The bus seated 46 people!! After communicating with the bus company, they are willing to hold on to our $878 check to be used at a later date. Hopefully, we will be able to fill a bus with enough individuals this coming Spring. I personally, want to thank Jim Mentle, John Metcalf, Hazel Teot and Marion Newman on the work that they did inorder to try to make the trip a success. Your efforts are truly appreciated.
Our next meeting will be our annual Christmas Party. The party will be held at NADA Center on the campus of Northwood University on Monday, December 5, 2011. Please note the change in location. I am still hoping that we will be hosting the students from the Intercultural Club. I have had only one communication from the club and have tried several times to speak with their President but have been unsuccessful in my endeavors. The menu for the dinner is as follows: Tossed green salad, Parmesan baked chicken, Hawaiian ham steaks, Parsley buttered potatoes, Medley of vegetables and Apple Pie. The cost of the dinner is $13 for PTPI members and $14 for non PTPI members. NOTE: There will not be bar service. Reservations must be made by calling Fran Mann at 832-2257 or me at 835-2567 by Friday, December 2, 2011. Transportation will be provided for those that do not drive at night. Looking forward to seeing you at the Christmas Party.
Just a reminder: The club will not be meeting in January, February or March. The remaining schedule for 2012 is as follows:
April – TBD
May – Wine and cheese from Around the World at Whiting Forest. This will be a fundraiser.
June – Annual Potluck in Sanford
Dues: Please make sure that you send John Metcalf your renewal statement. Those of you who have, thank you.
