General Activity Information: To All Game Players

We would like to compile a list of all players who would like to play in a game or become a member of a sub list for a game.

Hopefully this will help to start new groups or get more calls to sub in a game.

Also established games will be able to add to their sub lists.

Please e-mail me at feronebarbara@yahoo.com to let me know all the games you are interested playing or learning.

Also let me know of any other activities such as bowling or movies or any group you would like to see started.

Thank you,

Barbara Ferone

MEXICAN TRAIN DOMINOES

You are invited to join us for a fun, social game of 'Mexican Train Dominoes'. Open to all members! We play the second Friday every month!

This is the only game currently available to "Newcomers & Friends" that does not require a monthly commitment or RSVP and is open to all members. Come whenever you’re available. Dominoes is a fun, but simple game that you can learn in a few minutes and play right away.

This game is held at the IHOP restaurant which is located on Lyons, near the I-5 freeway. We start playing at 10:30 am and take a break around noon to order lunch and eat together.

We play till about 2 pm. If you are a new member, this is a great way to start getting involved with your Club and to meet new friends. If you are a long time member, come have fun with old and new friends. We would love to have you.

Please contact me at 661-670-0395 with any questions.

NEWCOMERS AND FRIENDS EXPLORER’S GROUP 2018 – 2019 TRIPS

For a variety of reasons, we have had to CHANGE the dates for the Chico's Fashion Shows Jodie and I are organizing for all of our friends. The new dates are Sunday, March 31st, 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 5, 5:00 p.m.

Please let us know if you plan on attending the fashion show on both dates or only on one particular date. Also, we'd like to know if you want to be one of the models for the afternoon.

Otherwise, everything else is the same:

The store will offer a 10% discount on TOP of the discount they will ordinarily offer at that time to both the models and the audience and the store will provide light snacks.

Jodie and I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks from Pat

Information from the brochure:

Website: www.yogananda-srf.org

The Self-Realization Fellowship is an international nonprofit society founded in 1920 and is open to all races, cultures, and creeds. The goal is to introduce scientific techniques of meditation for attaining a direct personal experience of God.

“Opened to the public in 1950 by Paramahansa Yogananda. The Lake Shrine has inspired thousands of visitors each year, many of whom return again and again to refresh mind and spirit in the peace that pervades this beautiful sanctuary.”

The Lake Shrine consists of the Court of Religions, the Windmill Chapel, the Golden Lotus Archway, the Houseboat and Landing, the Gandhi World Peach Memorial, the Sunken Garden, the Temple, and the Lake Shrine Retreat. There is also a museum and gift shop.

“In the Court of Religions each of the five principal religions of the world is represented by a monument that bears its symbol: a Cross for Christianity, a Star of David for Judaism, a Wheel of the Law for Buddhism, a Star and Crescent for Islam, and the Sanskrit character Aum for Hinduism. Paramahansa Yogananda noted, ‘We must recognize the unity of mankind, remembering that we are all made in the image of God. There must be world brotherhood if we are to be able to practice the true art of living.”

The pictures in the brochure show a beautiful, peaceful place to stroll through grounds and/or find a place to sit and just taken in the beauty of Lake Shrine.

Following our visit to Lake Shrine, we will have lunch at a nearby restaurant.
