2sDay, Aug. 28: Final Flamingo
Can you believe it? Poof -- and it's gone!
This will be a special night on the Porch, beginning with music compliments of Josh and Cathy Olson and Son. (You'll recognize Cathy as the singer with Mixed Company, the band that played our Holiday Party for the last several years.)
What to wear? That's up to you. But it is Final Flamingo.
A reminder that you don't have to be a member to enjoy the Porch. You can date us before you marry us! We leave the business of the Club behind as we enjoy the camaraderie of like-minded spirits.
As always -- a nip or a nosh to share, please.
2sDay, Sept 11.
Rental Committee Meeting
Book Group Meets Sept. 19
The WCA Book Group will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 25 to discuss "Winter Sisters" by Robin Oliveira. The post-Civil War novel is set in Albany. It is available in public libraries and at the Book House in Stuyvesant Plaza. If you purchase the book there, mention the WCA book group to receive a discount.
Those who attended the July 25 discussion of "Little Fires Everywhere" made some decisions about future meetings. The discussion will begin at 6:30 p.m., but doors to the WCA will open earlier so that people can set up any food items they bring or have time for informal discussions. Meetings will wrap up by 8 p.m., with the last 15 minutes used to decide the next book and meeting date. If the group decides to discuss that evening's book further, the group can decide to extend the time.
