Agenda For August 2017
August 1 -
will be the eighth time weve had the pleasure of having
Ivan Randall give us a presentation. The first time
he was our presenter was in April of 2004, so you can see
he has quite a history with TUGNET. He was always eager to
share the advantages of the products he was representing through
those years. There has been a gap in his visits because he
was working with a Mac developer, but hes now back on
the PC side. Its just great that he remembers us!
Hes now working with developers who focus on photo
editing. Im sure everyone will be interested in what
he has to show and tell us. While most of us have a favorite
photo editing program, theres always something we can
Come welcome him back!
8 - Board Meeting
The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting.
In case you arent aware of it, our board meetings are

an idea youd like to introduce, or a gripe (gosh, I

Leaving the corporate world, she found her passion back in
the health field helping people. As a holistic health coach,
she now supports women in their 50's who want to explore a
healthy and mostly whole food plant based lifestyle so they
can renew their youthful vibrancy and at the same time have
a positive impact on the environment.

coaching clients and offering the right system, support, and
accountability to show clients how to transform their health

August 22 - Dining
Dining Fund Raiser at Sizzler
7131 Van Nuys Blvd.
½ block south of Sherman Way
Here comes the fourth Tuesday of the month, so it is time
for us to dine together. Come join other members at the Van
Nuys Sizzler for our monthly fund raiser. Sizzler donates
15% of your check to the club. Most
get there between 5 & 6 p.m.
always enjoyable dining together with friends. This
is the easiest and tastiest way for you to help in TUGNETs
fund raising efforts.
Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence
as to whether we can return. Looking forward to seeing you!
I think everyone waits expectantly
for the night we have our dining together evening. Their menu
is such that regardless of your diet limitations, you can
find an items that fits your plan and is pleasing as well.
So plan to join your friends. Also, it helps our cause if
you can invite family members or friends to enjoy the evening
Be sure to pickup a flyer at the meeting, You need to present
it when ordering.
Thanks to all who have supported our dining events through
the year, it has helped our treasury while you had a pleasant
time and filled your tummies. We will continue to keep you
informed of the schedule of restaurants in the new year.
Please note: Dining events will
be planned for the fourth Tuesday from January on. That will
accommodate the board of directors meeting changing to the
second Tuesday each month.
There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury,
assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite
someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldnt
that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100
each time we have a dining event, with two events wed
have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell
me, whats better than that?
If you have a favorite restaurant youd
like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know
about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work
with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is
surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in
this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers
who otherwise wouldnt be there!
