If you would like to participate, your toys, for either gender and up to age 12, may be dropped off at Barb's (#10) or Frankie's (#104) by Friday, Dec. 16.
Thanks to all who can help make a child's Christmas a little brighter.

One more bike ride schedule change

Our Tuesday bike ride schedule conflicts with Book Club! 
 To avoid this, we will move the December 13 bicycle ride to December 6, next week. 
There will be no bike ride on December 13.

The bicycle ride on December 6 is the Bicentennial Boulevard bike trail in McAllen.  We will park at the International Museum of Art and Science(IMAS) on Nolana and Bicentennial Boulevard. 
 We will ride on bike paths along Bicentennial crossing a few roads at traffic lights. 
 The ride is on level paved surfaces and we ride at a leisurely pace. 
 Following the ride we'll spend some time at the IMAS which currently has a display of Christmas Trees
decorated by local organizations. 
 The theme this year
is a historic event from the last 50 years! 
 Something most all of us
can relate to...

One of the fun things about bicycle rides is learning about the local
community.  If you are new to the park
 or new to the Rio Grande Valley,
there is no better way to learn your way around
 than traveling with our group.

We will load our bikes at the IMAS following the ride and assemble at
the Corner Bakery and Cafe on 10th Street at Nolana, next to the Barnes an Noble Bookstore. 
 Following lunch, we disburse to return to the park
on our own.

The current forecast for Tuesday, December 6 is for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 70's. 
 Just what you need following a period of
four or five days of cloudy cool, possibly rainy weather.

Although you’re welcome to bring your own beverages, they’ll have a limited supply of beer, wine, margaritas and various spirits to choose from as well.
