Trips and Events for May and beyond -- by Bill Blaufuss, Trips & Events Committee Chairman
Before I comment on the actual events, please know:
--all of our events are open to spouses and significant others, and non-members of Y’s Men, space provided.
--these events are a superb way of meeting other Y’s Men members, all of whom (trust me) are very interesting people!
But a reminder: When the event is a paid-for-in-advance event, and you have signed-up and paid for it, in the event you should later have to cancel, T&E will first advise anyone who is on a wait-list. They will then pay you. But, keep in mind it is ultimately your responsibility to find someone else to take your place and to reimburse you.
Come on out and join us!
