Happy August

It’s time for a get together at in-person general meeting. We will be holding our meeting on the picnic benches at the Lions Club in San Martin, and it will be an ice cream social! The theme for this month’s meeting is ice cream. Please RSVP to news@smhorse.org so we can make sure we have enough ice-cream and fabulous fixings for you all to build your own sundae or banana split .

We will bring the ice-cream and you bring the social!

Friday August 13th 7pm to 8pm at San Martin Lions Club, 12415 Murphy Ave, San Martin, CA 95046

Please RSVP by Wednesday August 11th so that we can provide the right amount of ice cream and fixings.

In this month’s newsletter we have reports and pictures on a successful July 4th parade and Jack Brook camping trip. There are some County Parks volunteer opportunities this month listed in the Chitty Blog at the back.

Did I mention there is ice cream at this month’s meeting?
