TWO INTEREST-ONLY TRAVEL TOURS

CATALINA ISLAND TOUR - OCTOBER 7-10, 2018
Activities is putting together a three-night trip to Catalina Island in October. More details will be announced in a future Spectator. In the meantime, please sign up on our Interest-list in the Mail Room. 

MEXICAN RIVIERA CRUISE - NEW YEAR’S 2018/2019
We have received several requests to go on this trip again, so we’re putting out an Interest-list, to see who’s ready for a New Year’s Eve get-away. We hope you’ll join us for another music-filled Jazzdagen Tour, where you can enjoy toe-tapping jazz from morning to night, sailing on Holland America’s MS Eurodam, departing Sunday, December 30, 2018 and returning Sunday, January 6, 2019. Our ports-of-call are Puerto Vallarta, an artistic cobblestone village, with chic shopping and busy open markets; Mazatlan, a cosmopolitan city with its interesting history and culture; and Cabo San Lucas, with its beautiful beaches. While in port, we’ll have the opportunity to participate in any of the interesting on-shore excursions. Prices for this trip will vary depending on your stateroom selection. Please sign up in the Mail Room if you’re interested in this trip. For more information, please call Melissa at # 8087.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT SOCIAL

Join us on Wednesdays, from 5:00 to 6:30 pm in the Bliss Room (or Casa Courtyard – weather permitting). It is a chance for new and old members of the Casa Family to meet and greet INFORMALLY (come as you are---no need to dress up) for an hour or so before dinner for those who wish to go on to dinner---or for those who just want human companionship after a day’s work or play--- or for those who want to meet all the new folks coming in with a chance to talk one-on-one. Dining Services will provide glasses, setups, ice, and garnishes, but please bring your own favorite booze, wine or beer so you may have exactly what you’d enjoy. Snacks will be provided.

JOIN US AT THE OPEN TABLE
IN THE DINING ROOM

Come and enjoy our beautiful Dining Room, and fill the Open Table with some of our newest Casa residents any Thursday or Saturday evening at 6:00 pm. May I suggest that long-time residents call their new resident acquaintances and invite them along as Open Table guests? 

However, here is a special notice to those who have recently joined us: we’d love to have you sign the Notebook (located in the Dining Room Lobby) yourselves and come ahead for a fun dining evening. That way, we’ll really be prepared to welcome you properly. ~ Carol Cramer, Phone # 8860
