Changes to our regular monthly schedule: One of the consistent responses to our spring 2014 survey of retirees was a preference that scheduled events be held mid-week avoiding either Fridays or Mondays. Accordingly, the Retiree Network steering committee has decided to change our standing meeting dates for the Pinot & Prose Book Club, the monthly business meetings and the monthly happy hour gatherings beginning in September. Our planned dates/times for those events going forward will be: Happy Hour, the second Wednesday afternoon of each month at 4:00 p.m.; Pinot & Prose, the fourth Wednesday of each month at 11:30 a.m.; and the network’s monthly business meeting, the fourth Wednesday of each month at 1:00 p.m.
Wednesday, September 10th, 4:00 p.m. Happy Hour, Isabel (in the Pearl District), 330 N.W. 10th Avenue. (Corner of NW 10th and NW Flanders. Note: If you Google it you’ll get their primary web page, which is for their San Francisco based location. Selecting Isabel Pearl gets only a pop up with address, hours, and options for making reservations.)
