Up Coming Special Event


Saturday, June 2, 2018
5:30pm - 9:00pm
Monthly Pot Luck and Social - theme: Luau 
Special for this event is 
the feature movie: 
"Stonewall Uprising" 

The theme this month will be our annual "Luau" - wear your grass 
skirts if you would like!! The Planning Committee has talked about 
diversity in our monthly social gathering, among the ideas has been 
a "Movie Night". 

So with that in mind we will launch the idea and see how it is received. 
Scheduled movie entertainment for those that wish to stay after dinner 
and dessert is the feature documentary "Stonewall Uprising". 
Synopsis: "It was the Rosa Parks moment," says one man. 
June 28, 1969: NYC police raid a Greenwich Village Mafia-run gay bar, 
The Stonewall Inn. For the first time, patrons refuse to be led into paddy
wagons, setting off a 3-day riot that launches the Gay Rights Movement. 
Told by Stonewall patrons, reporters and the cop who led the raid, 
Stonewall Uprising recalls the bad old days when psychoanalysts 
equated homosexuality with mental illness and advised aversion therapy, 
and even lobotomies; public service announcements warned youngsters 
against predatory homosexuals; and police entrapment was rampant. 
At the height of this oppression, the cops raid Stonewall, triggering nights 
of pandemonium with tear gas, billy clubs and a small army of tactical 
police. The rest is history. (Karen Cooper, Director, Film Forum) 

The social evening will begin when the gate opens at 5:30, dinner is 
now served promptly at 6PM with brief announcements after dessert. 
Come out and get to know each other better - shame on you if you 
don't meet someone new or reacquaint with someone you haven't 
seen in ages tonight may be the night, we are after all social creatures 
aren't we!?!? 

We will be collecting the traditional participation fees tonight, $3.00 per 
person if bringing a dish that will serve at least 8 guys or $5.00 per person 
if no dish is shared. Main course items or deserts always popular. Birthday 
cake will be provided. 

Please, summer is back, care needs to be taken with keeping foods at 
proper temperatures, especially cold foods. When arriving at the hall, 
all foods must be "ready to serve", we no longer keep food in the ovens - 
all foods are delivered directly to the serving line so that dinner can begin 
promptly at 6PM! 

Our Monthly Pot Lucks and Socials are usually planned for a 
Member Guest Host to lead the event with Open Theme either 
chosen by the guest host or otherwise regularly planned. If you 
would like to Guest Host a month or you have a special Theme 
you would like to present, such as a birthday party or anniversary 
party for your special someone OR any other creative idea that 
would interest "the gang" - please contact Thom at 305-6976 or 
email him at and we can reserve 
the calendar and plan the event.
