Have a very happy birthday!!

Hey Fellow Virgos(and a few cusp Libras too), 
It's that time again for the "Virgos Do Valhalla Party" where we do our zodiac sign proud and show BCRR what a fun loving bunch Virgos are.  If you were unable to attend last year, it was a great pot-luck party with about 70-80 people attending. If you did attend last year, Thank You! This year's VDV party is planned for the third Wednesday in September on the 18th at 7pm.
For those who would like to help pitch in for the beer tab, bring side dishes or dessert, or have any "special" activity ideas, please email me at  I'll bring BBQ Chicken Sliders and Grilled Veggie-wiches for those gluten free/non-meat eaters.
 Thanks so much,
 Susan Cita
 BCRR Treasurer and fellow Virgo
