Most get there between

see you there.
Here comes the fourth Tuesday of the month,
so it is time for us to dine together. This is the month for
us to return to Two Guys from Italy, one of our favorite restaurants.
It is in the same business complex as our meeting hall.
The menu is varied with, obviously, the emphasis being on
Italian dishes. But there are entree salads to please those
who may not want the pasta dinners, as well as sandwiches
and soup. They are a generous donor who pays at the end of
the evening. Try to come as the number of guests is always
an influence as to whether we can return.
There are servers waiting for you
I think its called a win-win!
Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence
as to whether we can return.
Here is your opportunity to help TUGNET while
you enjoy a lovely, healthy meal with no preparation or clean-up.
Really what can be better than that?
Remember, this is the easiest way to help TUGNETs financial
needs since 20% percent of your meal total will be returned
to us. So please plan to eat out!
From 4:00 to 8:00 our meals will apply toward
fund raising. Be sure to bring our flyer or show it
on your phone or other device to the cashier. They
are generous with their donations from these fund-raising
meals and have always sent a check for our share very promptly.
Can you tell me an easier way to earn funds to support TUGNET?
Please try hard to participate.
They are good about having us sit together
and the waitress marks all our orders as "TUGNET."
Most get there between 5 & 6 p.m.
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 of the monthly newsletter.
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!
