Reminder : End Of Season Party – Is Still On!

Dear CJTC Members,

It has been a difficult week for many of us and we hope that things are returning to normal for each of you. Hurricane Sandy has impacted each of us in some way which makes dealing with these challenges just one more thing to handle amongst all the other challenges.

However, with dealing with these challenges, we need to take time for ourselves and breath. With that we are just re-iterating that the CJTC End Of Season Party on Wednesday, November 14th @ 7:30pm at The Chimney Rock Inn will still be taking place as scheduled.

Please come out, take a break from the madness, have a drink if you like and have a fun eventful time with your fellow club members. We will be reviewing this years accomplishments, introducing some new board members and handing out some free gifts and prizes.

If you haven’t RSVP’d to the Evite sent out please do that so we can have an accurate head count for the event. Or if you can’t located the Evite you may also RSVP to the club Gmail address.
