      will host a Potluck and Pool Party at their home, located just northeast of Tower Grove Park on Accomac Street in the Compton Heights neighborhood. Although this is a Pool Party, you do not have to get wet or spend time in the pool to have fun since there will be lots of other things to do.

      A few adjustments are planned for this year’s annual pool party:

      1. The pool opens at 3pm, not 5pm For new members to understand; it a party not a meeting. Come when you are ready and stay until … The pool will be open but pool time is completely optional.

      2. The live music by Jerry Rabushka and his band starts at 4pm not 5pm (Note: Still being scheduled)

      3. Food service starts at 5pm.

      So come early and enjoy the time to meet new members.

      Ed will provide brats (no burgers), soft drinks and coffee. You bring a side dish. Alcohol is BYOB. Since this event may have a very large turnout, bring a folding chair if you have one.

      By Thursday, September 6, click here to email Ed V. to RSVP at pompomkuku@yahoo.com or call his number listed in the member roster. Give your FULL name, the names of any guests, and the side dish, appetizer or dessert you will bring.
