2012 Reunion - Thu, Dec 6!


Well, it's that time of year again. Shortly after our gathering last year, Tia Juana's closed their doors so we've been looking for a new venue ever since.

Our get together this year is Thursday, Dec. 6 ~ 4:30 PM at the Citrus Cafe in Tustin, which depending on the accuracy of the Mayan calendar, could be the last. Personally, I'm betting we'll be getting together again in 2013, but just in case, come on out and say good-bye to everyone. If you remember where the Barn used to be, the Citrus Cafe is directly across Red Hill. There's plenty of free parking and they have good food, wine and beer (no hard liquor).

Citrus Cafe
1481 Edinger Ave.
Tustin, CA 92780
(714) 258-2404

We went over the 20,000 visits mark earlier in the year. Thanks as always to John Luttrell and BasisMedia for hosting our site as well as maintaining it--it really wouldn't be what it is without John's tireless efforts.

I heard from Mike Barber a few months ago saying that he and Juanita Garcia would be coming down. I also heard from Webb Braughton saying there's a possibility that he and Terry Johnson would be making an appearance. Anyone else wishing to make your intentions known, feel free to leave a message in the guest book at the web site. Hope to see you all there.



P.S. If you're visiting the site and have not gotten an email invitation, that means we don't have a working email address for you. Please send any and all email updates to:

Cleaning for a Reason

If you know any woman currently undergoing chemotherapy, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning - once per month for 4 months while she is in treatment.

All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating "maid service" in her zip code area arrange for the service. This organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women. It's our job to pass the word and let them know that there are people out there that care.

Be a blessing to someone and pass this information along:

Great information. You may not know someone going through chemo, but someone on your email list might.

Please forward!
