Click here for meeting flier.

A St. Patrick's Celebration buffet dinner catered by Jolanda is scheduled for Clubhouse 2 at 5:30 pm Thursday -- the same evening as our next General Meeting -- and it's already sold out. We anticipate parking problems for club members and guests arriving at 6:30 pm for our meeting. (The Clubhouse 7 lot across Moulton is an alternative.+)

To help us avoid this hassle, Clubhouse 2 Manager Jennifer Murphy has arranged for Jolanda's Catering to sell us "to-go" corned beef and cabbage dinners for $13 per person at 5:30 pm. We'll eat together in the Video Studio, then go into the Video Lab for the meeting. Reservation deadline is 5 pm Monday, March 13. RSVP to Steve Carman,, 424-254-6583. Bring a check made out to "Jolanda's Catering" or exact cash to CH2 where you'll pay and pick up your food. Then bring your dinner to the Studio. We'll provide beverages.

THE PROGRAM: Back again after her very successful presentation at our March, 2016, General Meeting, documentary filmmaker Sally Rubin, a full-time faculty member in Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, will discuss “Documentary Filmmaking: the Art of Earning People’s Trust” (how to get folks to open up on-camera) at our next General Meeting, Thursday, March 16, in the Video Lab. Refreshments and socializing at 6:30 pm, program at 7. No charge. Open to all members, residents, and their guests.
