[MBZ] Fwd: Reminder- three weeks until June 12 BNZ & Q

Subject: Reminder- three weeks until June 12 BNZ & Q


Dear Mercedes Friends,
We will gather as I wrote in my earlier message (below). Please bring a
chair. We will be grilling burgers and hot dogs so please bring a dish to
pass.  We usually gather mid morning and we will eat at about 1PM.
Looking forward to a nice event. Let me know if you have any questions.
