April 1st Meeting

Posted March 26, 2010 at 7:06 PM
No, its not April Fools Day, its the first Thursday of the month and time for the BRANDERMILL REGION MEN'S CLUB to meet at the Brandermill Church for another great program.

Refreshments and fellowship at 9:15 a.m.
The meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. sharp.

This month we welcome as our special guest speaker Dr. Glenn Winters, Virginia Opera Company's community outreach musical director, who will introduce us to the "unknown Gershwin," composer of the opera "Porgy and Bess." Our BRMC special trip to the May 1st performance at the Carpenter Theatre is fully booked, but the performances on April 30 and May 2 may have seats available.

Following the meeting, the "Join the Guys for Lunch" bunch -- everyone is encouraged to participate -- will revisit the popular The Grill at Waterford in the shopping center at Genito and Charter Colony. Look for the displays of Photographs by our member Horst Arfert and the art work by Helen Sanders, wife of our member Earl.
