NOTICE – Our next monthly club meeting and program is scheduled to take place Monday, December 6th, at the Traveler’s Cafe & Pub, 5225 Portage Rd., Portage, MI. Starting in October this year, our monthly meeting night has been changed from the 3rd Monday of each month to the 1st Monday of the month. This is due to staffing shortages at the restaurant, and with this change our club will have exclusive use of the restaurant on these Monday nights.
This is the former Theo & Stacy’s. New owners, new menu, new decor, same meeting room. Come join us and check it out. Traveler’s is opening the restaurant just for us, so there will be plenty of space to spread out and “social distance”. Dinner and social hour begins at 6:00 P.M, meeting at 7:00, program at 7:30.
