Bring: $5 ante for Bunco; $3 for L-R-C (exact change appreciated!); and a beverage or snack to share

RSVP: email Kessa at kessaglisic@gmail.com to RSVP and for location details

About the Games: Bunco is an entertaining, simple dice game, with no experience requiredIt’s played in multiple rounds with players alternating turns rolling the dice to match the target number. Whoever wins the most rounds is the overall winner. And because players rotate tables, it is a great way to meet and chat with different people. Left-Right-Center is an even simpler game, faster moving than Bunco, and is played at the end of the evening. Did we mention there’s no experience required?

Book Club – Tuesday, February 12 at 7:30pm

The book for The Cuckoo’s Calling is a mystery by Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling’s pseudonym).  After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Detective Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator.  John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
Members are kindly asked to bring a beverage or snack to share. Please remember to RSVP so that the host will know how many to accommodate for at her home.  Location details will be sent out the day before the meeting. 
RSVP by Monday, February 11th to Priya at priyanpatel@yahoo.com

As a reminder, the reading list for the entire year can be found on the LNN website under the tab for Book Club.

Walking Group – Tuesdays at 9am

It’s been chilly, but snow and ice hasn’t been too bad on Tuesdays so we’re still mostly walking outdoors (though we did switch it up and cross country ski last week, which was super fun.  Join us next time, all levels welcome!).  If it is really snowy or icy, then the walk may be switched to the Burlington Mall or coffee at Starbucks.  Email Deb at debbra.zucker@gmail.com to be added to the email group and receive the weekly walk details.
