Please join us on August 7, 2016 from 1:30-4 (book discussion beginning at 2) when we will be discussing Debra Dean’s Madonnas of Leningrad at the home of Veronica Paracchini ’67 in Cape Meares, OR. We have had wonderful meetings at the Coast for the last three years, and we are looking forward to another beautiful weekend!

Below are a few details:

  • Please notify Debbie Olsen ’65 at dolsen@linfield.edu if you plan to attend (even if you’re rather tentative). This will put you on the list to receive more detailed information as we get closer to the date.
  • The book club discussion will take place at 2 PM but, as usual, participants are welcome at 1:30 PM for conversation.
  • There will be a potluck the night before (Saturday, August 6th) starting at 5 PM at a nearby house rented by Debbie, Caroline, and Margaret. Spouses, partners, kids, or other traveling companions are welcome.
  • If you are interested in camping at or near Veronica’s home, please contact her at veropar45@gmail.com. Veronica and Bob have invited all campers for breakfast at their home on Sunday morning.
  • If you plan to overnight Saturday or Sunday, there are places available to rent in Cape Meares and nearby towns. One source is https://www.vacasa.com/usa/Oregon/Cape-Meares/?search=cape+Meares+Oregon&UserHistoryID=43905668&wz=3&neighbor=1&display=&gridS= Contact Veronica for additional ideas regarding motels or other options.

This event has been lots of fun the last three years, and we look forward to another great gathering at the coast! Feel free to send Debbie your questions.
