Sacramento Games Night/BBQ/Pool Party

We tried a pool party in June, but the weather didn't cooperate. While it was a great party, it was too chilly to swim. Let's try it again! Those who don't swim can still play games, but we're taking a break from routine and having a barbeque. The pool is open for those who would like to take a swim. The party is at the home of Lesley James. Lesley will provide barbequed chicken, as well as coffee, tea, wine and Italian sodas. You bring the sides. Well-behaved and supervised children are welcome, but a parent must be present and attentive at the pool. Call Lesley at (916) 761-0825 for directions or information.
