WRITERS' NIGHT OUT update from Karen Holmes

Dear Writers and Friends,

The second Friday comes early in June! Please mark your calendars for Writers' Night Out on June 8.

We had a great turn out last month. A few glitches we experienced at the restaurant should be solved this time, as promised by the manager. Specifically, the door to our room will not be used for other patrons passing through to get to the restaurant, we will have a microphone if needed, and the computer billing system will be up and running so we can each pay our bills quicker. That makes the venue just right for our group. 

Friday, June 8
Brother's Restaurant at Willow Ranch, Young Harris (across from Brasstown Valley Resort)
Private Room Upstairs (if you can't do stairs, park in the back upper parking lot and come right into our room via a ramp) 6:00 order food, socialize

6:30 eat, drink, be merry
