Please join fellow SNC members for a free dinner for all paid up SNC members at Golden Corral located at 15775 E. Arapahoe Road, Centennial, CO 80016. Their phone number is 303-865-4250. This new restaurant is opened almost a year now and is located at the Northwest corner of Arapahoe and Parker Roads. When heading east on Arapahoe Road after the South Chambers light stay in the left lane and turn left into the shopping center where the Golden Corral is located. When heading south on Parker Road exit at Arapahoe Road and turn right into the shopping center prior to getting on Arapahoe Road. We will be meeting in their banquet room at 5:30 PM and just ask for SNC when you arrive. This is a brightly lit restaurant with homestyle buffet favorites such as pot roast, roast beef, carved turkey, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and steamed vegetables. The Centennial Golden Corral will showcase exhibition food
preparation featuring cooked-to-order steak on the dinner buffet. You can also find various areas with Chinese, Mexican and Italian foods. In addition they have all sorts of delicious deserts and a beautiful salad bar. I am getting hungry just listing all the food they have to offer and I know you will walk away stuffed. Make sure your membership is up-to-date and if it is your dinner will be free. Call Dee to see if your dues are current. You can pay your dues on October 28 and if you are not renewing you will need to pay for your food that night. We will need you to RSVP to Dee by Friday, October 26 as we need to give the Golden Corral a head count prior to our dinner. Please do not call Rosalie as she will not be taking reservations. Please remember to invite other single people you know to this Appreciation Dinner as we always like to increase the size of our club. Guests can come to a few events and then hopefully they will join our club. Hosts of events are encouraged to speak to guests that come on a regular basis to join our club as our dues are very reasonable (only $25.00 a year). If a guest decides to join tonight and pay the $25.00 dues their meal will be free and they will be able to be a SNC member for an entire
year. What a deal!

Additional Fun Things to Do.

How about setting up a Happy Hour at the Beer Garden at Lowry? Some SNC members ate there and the food was very good and reasonably priced. They have a happy hour Monday-Friday from 3:00-6:00 PM with $1.00 off beer and wine and $3.00 well drinks.

How about meeting for breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday? How about going to a movie on a Saturday night and dinner out? How about setting up a Bronco watch at a bar or your home?

How about a walk, bike ride or hike for our group? At the DCPA new plays will be starting and we may be able to get $10.00 tickets at 10:00 AM on Tuesday morning’s for some of them and go as a group.

We can have an FAC and go to the Aurora Summit or Whispers or another local spot where they have dancing at night.

Jennifer brought to our attention a new play called “The Value of Names” by Jeffrey Sweet at the Theatre Or MACC at the JCC. It will be performed from September 8 till November 4. Tickets are $20.00-$25.00 and some performances have talkbacks. It is about an actor blacklisted in the 1950’s who succeeds in television after years of unemployment. You can call 303-316-6360 for more information.

Rosalie mentioned about The Money Museum at our September SNC meeting. It is located in the Federal Reserve Bank on 16th Street opposite Rock Bottom and she would like to set up a free tour sometime in November. If you are interested, please let her know.

The choice is up to you so if you haven’t set an activity up this year here is your opportunity to think of something that you and the group may enjoy.

November Turkey Day! Please put Saturday, November 17 around 5:30 PM on your calendar as this will be the date for our 2012 pre-Thanksgiving Dinner at Cherri’s Clubhouse. She will be organizing our usual Thanksgiving Dinner with everyone signing up and bringing a dish. This will also be a game night.
