BeyondSP Newsletter & Web Site - July 2017
Hi Folks,

In the next few days we have much to celebrate. 

Saturday, July 1st is "Canada Day" - it celebrates the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act,  which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia,
and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada.

Then Tuesday, July 4th is our "Independence Day", commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776.

And (it's almost lost between these two great holidays) don't forget to celebrate
my birthday!  It's on Sunday, July 2nd.

Now a sad note - Arlene Evans received a phone call from Jim Russell informing her that former Single Place member James Sharer had passed away. Many of you may remember Jim - he was a member of our "walking group" and a really nice guy.

James P. (Jim) Sharer
1943 - 2017

 Funeral mass Thursday July 6th 10:30, with in-state at 10:00, at St. James Catholic Church 46325 W 10 Mile Rd., Novi, MI 48374.

    Note: This month's Dining out will be at 5 pm.

Have you folks heard of    In January I joined three of their groups an have since attended 16 events.  They probably have Meetup groups for doily knitters if you're interested.  I'm not, but they
also host many social groups for folks like us, as in Happy Hour, Dining Out, Theatre, .. etc..  
There's no cost to join and no cost for most events other than your own ticket or tab.  You must provide an email address (kept confidential), a picture and a first name - last names are optional.  You must RSVP to most events, and very often they fill up fast but do have waiting lists. The Meetups I've attended have had 20 to 40 folks attending, ages ranging from the 40's into the sixties or more, most friendly and willing to socialize.  With no BSP events other than our monthly "Dining Out" you may want to give "Meetup" a try. 
If you want to learn more about Meetup, use the live link to their website (above) or contact me..
(And no, I am not a paid Meetup spokesperson!)


We need folks to step up and sponsor new events!
Contact me or Gayle if you'd like to host an event. 

Note: Until further notice Dining Out will be on the third Wednesday of each month!
