It is hard to believe that summer is nearing an end!  School is starting, football is right around the corner, and things are picking back up at the Polish Falcons!  Summertime is usually quieter around the club because members have so many other things going on.  We have had a few fun events happen, including:  Burrito Night, the Tigers bus trip on Polish-American night, a pancake breakfast, the annual golf outing, and the men's Tigers bus trip.  A lot of these events were summarized in our July newsletter, and hopefully you have had an opportunity to read about them (if you were not able to attend).

September is just a couple of days away and we wanted to give you a snapshot of the month's events.  They are as follows:

Wednesday, September 7 at 7:00p.m.:  Social Committee Meeting.  All members are encouraged to attend - these meetings focus on brainstorming ideas for events at the club and working to host different activities.  We know your time is valuable, and participation in these meetings count toward annual volunteer hours.
