Let Leslie know if you want to go
It’s going to be a fun filled year for fellow Corinthians and their guests with lots of events to please everyone. Co-Commodores Kathy and Leslie have listed suggestions for our enthusiastic Activities Committee and plans are already in action. Several people have already stepped forward to lead some events. We hope that you may find several things to fit your interests on the attached flyer and join us in remaining a Corinthian. It’s not too late to get your membership dues in. It’s your opportunity to be with old friends and new, starting with Change of Watch November 7th at Maggiano’s Restaurant. If you have any other suggestions of fun things for us to do, please contact Activities Committee, Miriam Maguire, Ellyn Okrent or Jill Scheur.
