P.S. Hey Gang, I've volunteered to raise funds for the YMCA this year. It's a great organization that does a lot for the community: they assist children who have difficulties because of family economics; they offer reduced rates for adults who are unable to afford regular memberships so they, too, can exercise; and they have programs for senior citizens as well. I'm sure many of you have had some experience with the Y -- and even that is a service to the community. ;-)

I will be having a raffle at the pool party. Those who bring a donation of $5.00, $10.00, or more will receive a ticket to enter the prize drawing -- one ticket for each $5.00 you donate. Please consider making a tax-free donation and help others in the process. I'd like to think we all lead a life that has many blessings -- including the ability to participate in monthly dinners, pool parties, happy hours, movie nights -- and this is a chance for us to give a little back to others less fortunate.

Thanks for your anticipated support! Bill

First You Fall: A Kevin Connor Mystery (Scott Sherman) When his friend's death is ruled a suicide, Kevin Connor -- a hustler by trade, sleuth by default -- sets out to prove a case of murder. It doesn't help matters that the victim's grown children, who disapproved of their father's gay lifestyle, are only concerned about their inheritance. But they are not Kevin's only problem. His high-strung mother has moved in with him-and she knows nothing about his questionable . . . job.

Tuesday Movie Mania for August

Cowboys and Aliens
Tuesday, August 9, 7:20 PM
Cinemark Tinseltown - Six Flags Mall
Tickets: $8.25
Synopsis: “1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don't welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde. It's a town that lives in fear. But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.” The movie stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde.
