“Meet Me in Memphis” event

It is time once again for our annual “Meet Me in Memphis” event.  Brent Burns, one of the Godfathers of Trop Rock  will be our musical guest.  Since he is coming all the way from Alabama we had to set the gate fee (all goes to Brent for his expenses) to $20 per person.  We will also have snacks and free giveaways from Margaritaville!  And a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Ronald McDonald House.  This will be a great event.  It will be on Friday, July 20th, music from 7 to 10 pm.  Come after work and swim and eat and enjoy.  Or you can skip work and hang out in the pool all day! 

Brent is hard to get; we had him here in Memphis years ago and it was terrific, but his schedule fills up quickly so we hope to get him a great attendance to make sure it is worth his while to come all the way to Memphis.  Please make plans to attend and invite your friends.  Let me know if you will be able to help with setup, etc.  Thanks everyone and I look forward to seeing you!!
