Planning Meeting

WMR will hold its annual planning meeting at Bisto Bella Vita on Monday, November 6. The event begins with dinner at 6:00, and typically goes to around 9:00. We use this time to map out our tentative event schedule for the next year – it’s not too early to begin thinking about 2018! All members are invited to join this session and contribute to the schedule. Bistro Bella Vita is located at 44 Grandville SW in downtown Grand Rapids. Please RSVP to Mike Karluk by November 1.

November Dinner Drive

Peppino’s isn’t just pizza. Discover that on November 11, at 5:00 pm. We were unable to reserve the Main Street Pub due to a GVSU home football game. We believe this alternative will be to every ones liking. It is west of the Main Street Pub on M45. The menu will be a buffet called a Taste of Italy. It features chicken parmesan, fettuccine alfredo, lasagna, breadstix tossed in garlic butter and Romano cheese, plus salad. $16.99 per person not included is drinks. The managers have us in a place they call the loft. Peppino’s is located at 5065 Lake Michigan Drive, Allendale.  MI Join us for good food, good fun, and good friends. Weather permitting drive your baby’s RSVP to Randy and Lin Portoluri at rportoluri66@charter.net,  or 616-842-9266.
