Sacramento Games Night/BBQ/Pool Party

We'll do the BBQ and pool again this month as it's likely to be plenty warm; next month we'll revert to a regular "Games Night." 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. The address is in Sacramento. Call Lesley at (916) 761-0825 for directions or information.
