Annual Midsummer Potluck Meeting

The Handlan Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club will have a midsummer get-together to socialize, discuss summer bird sightings, and even enjoy something to eat.

We will meet at Connie Bergmark's on Middle Ridge on Monday, July 15, at 6:00pm.

This is a potluck dinner, so bring a covered dish of your choice - main dish, dessert, or salad, and drinks of your choice.  Plates, cups, dishes, eating utensils, and ice will be provided.
