THIS WEEK AT UUCR
Fri, July 20, 6 p.m. — Potluck Dinner at the home of Linda and Phillip Dutton!  No need to RSVP — just bring a dish to share and we will do the rest. Directions to the Duttons’ home: From Chestertown travel North on 213 just to the SudnSoda corner.  Turn left at that corner onto Rt. 297 and travel about 4 miles toward Worton.  When you reach the intersection of Rt. 297 & Rt. 298 at the Kent County High School corner, turn right onto 298.  Go a short distance and turn left onto Coopers Lane.  Take Coopers Lane to the end (about 4 miles) and make a left turn at the “T” onto Kinnairds Point Drive.  Go a short distance and turn right onto Cliff Drive.  Cliff Drive ends quickly at another “T.”  Turn left at this “T” onto Cliff Drive Ext. We are the first home on the right, #24040 Cliff Drive.  Call 410 778 5457 if you have any questions or trouble.
  There will be outside tables, chairs, utensils, some shade, basic beverages with lots of other room in ice chests and a hot grill ready to share.
Feel free to drop off any food or persons and try to allow the driveway to remain open by parking on the side of the yard and the street.  You can’t hurt a thing on the lawn.
Come on in the front door or around and down the side yard as you will find us on the backyard patio.  Looking forward to seeing you all!

Discussion, July 21, 10 a.m., Joy Kim – “Frome Ehres and Come Heres from a Comeback’s Perspective”
Most UUCRs came to Chestertown from somewhere else; many a long time ago. Still the native locals and the residents born elsewhere seem to stay somewhat apart in their own social realms. So as a native returned to the area, I’d like to hear and discuss why this appears to be true. This will just be a casual, fun discussion.

FROM YOUR EDITOR
I will be out of town  July 14 through August 1. I will have created the Broadsheets for July 18, July 25, and Aug 1 before my departure and will have them set up to automatically “publish” at 9 a.m. on each of these Wednesdays.
Dick Hawkins has kindly agreed to tweak these Broadsheets with updates as needed. (He has all the magic passwords, etc.) So, when you think of items that should go in one or more of these Broadsheets, please send them to Dick: rbhawkins@gmail.com.
Thanks, Dick and all!
 
Jane Hardy, Editor
