Pick it up and be ready to discuss July's selection, " The Heart's Invisible Furies" by John Boyne.
Meet & Eat SIG
The group enjoyed Caribbean Food on May 7th at 12:00 Noon (A Lunch Event) at Chef Robs. The next selection is Cajun (not a country but a great cuisine).Laissez le Bon Temps Rouillez!!!! The Cajuns, also known as Acadians, are an ethnic group mainly living in the U.S. state of Louisiana, and in the Canadian maritimes provinces as well as Québec. They are known for their food and style of dance. On June 11, at 6:45 PM, the TTN SIG will enjoy Cajun Food at the Louisiana Bistreaux. The website is: http://www.louisianabistreaux.com where you can see the menu. The restaurant is located at 1496 Church Street, E-G, Decatur, GA 30030. The phone number is 404-963-1463. Live music will be on hand as well. Please register on-line by June 9th.
Now is the time to learn something new. Mah Jongg is a game of skill, luck and opportunity to mingle and converse with women of similar interests. We rotate around the city, we eat lunch, we agonize if the tiles and jokers do not come our way and we rejoice if we get to say "Mah Jongg", which means you won the game. It is somewhat addictive but more importantly a lot of fun. If interested in participating or have questions, and would an evening gamework for you? Anyone interested, please contact Elaine Cloward.
We have 12 members playing and would not mind more joining in.
Out and About
On Saturday, May 18th a group absolutely enjoyed a beautiful day at Gibbs Garden. They walked the grounds of the garden and visited the Manor House, the Waterlily Gardens, Japanese Garden and saw a display of color throughout. An added treat was the Arts Festival. Many interesting things to see and buy. The weather was perfect which made it a fulfilling day. More plans are forthcoming about the next venture.
