MSN April Pot Luck and Social
April 6th, 2013
Comedy + Egyptian Travelogue!
Please join us, Ike and Ken, as we host this month's potluck.

Right after dinner (as we have dessert) we will show a brief comedy sequence of bawdy songs, by singer-comedian Stephen Lynch.

Then, for those who are interested we have a video of sights and sounds in Egypt. This includes the major temples and pyramids. The video is narrated by Ike's sister, Kitt, who is a professional voice over, and was made in 1989 when Ike and Ken lived and worked in Egypt, and Kitt and family visited us.

This is a regular potluck, but we do plan to bring a sample of a couple Egyptian dishes.


(If anyone has an Egyptian favorite dish that they would like to share, please plan on bringing it, too.)


Be sure and plan to attend for a fun filled evening.


Thanks much,  

Ike and Ken.

Saturday April 13, Noon to ?


Yes, it is that time of year again, but with a new location and a new format! 


Lakeside Park is located on the East Side, south of Golf Links on Sarnoff.  Our Ramada is off Sarnoff at the second entrance, right before the intersection with Stella.  We have a great view of the lake and are convenient to the restroom.


This will be our first complete pot luck style picnic.  Bring your own main dish, meat or vegetarian, and a dish to share.  We will have a grill available for cooking your meat!


As in a traditional pot luck, MSN will supply plates, cups, drinks, utensils, and napkins.  We have the Ramada for the whole day, but festivities will begin around noon. 


This event is for current MSN Members and their guests. 




Please contact Davis at 325-4754 ([email protected]) or register through the MSN RSVP email (which will be sent in the near future) for reservations.  Please be prepared to tell us what dish you plan to bring to share.
