Welcome to the 2011 Mentor/Mentee Program!
Opening night is Thursday,
May 26th. We will be having a
potluck dinner starting at 6:30pm with Bridge beginning around 7:15. Mentees are asked to bring a food dish
(picnic type item, appetizer, dessert, etc.) to share with everyone as a thank
you to all of the Mentors who are donating their time and talents. CBA will provide soft drinks, beer and wine.
Even if you and your
Mentor/Mentee are unable to play together on May 26th, we still
encourage everyone enrolled in the program to come out and enjoy the
festivities. If you are in need of a
partner for the evening, contact any member of the Mentor/Mentee committee, and
we’ll try and hook you up.
