Rochester Community House Meeting


2021 GARDEN PARTY-A HUGE SUCCESS!

More than 70 members and guests gathered on July 29 and strolled the Van Hoosen Farms gardens, enjoyed a delicious salad box lunch catered by Cranks, browsed the four silent auction tables and traveled with Judy G, member and world traveler to “Ten Fabulous Gardens from Around the World”. Judy was a fun speaker and even gave out “prize money between gardens” sharing her travel pictures on a huge screen- a little like the “drive-in”.  It couldn’t have been nicer!  (We were sad that we had to turn away over ten people as we were sold out a week ahead of time). The silent auction was a very successful branch activities fundraiser and brought in over $1,000.  Thank you to all who supported this event with your time, donations and attendance.

NEXT IS OUR SPECTACULAR HOLIDAY PARTY ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2021
AT THE WYNDGATE COUNTRY CLUB (Oakland Twp) – LUNCHEON AND FASHION SHOW.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR-DON’T MISS IT!


All enjoyed the Zoom Talk for our ROCHESTER BRANCH MEMBERS by JOE GRIMM about “DETROIT CONEY” on Friday, JANUARY 15, 2021. We learned about the history and origins of Detroit Coney Restaurants!  Joe spoke to our group in January 2020 about the history of Faygo!  Look for our upcoming Saturday, January 21, 2022 luncheon meeting with Joe Grimm speaking to our branch with another humorous discussion!

Join us for our Book Study Groups in 2021 & 2022! Go to the Book Study Page on our Website to see the books!
