June Lee Connection
Well FLASC friends, my two-year run as publicity/newsletter chair officially ends today, June 1. This will be my last newsletter before our family PCSes to White Sands Missile Range, NM. I’ve had a fabulous time creating flyers for all of FLASC’s awesome events and putting together the newsletter each month to try to keep you all informed. I’ll miss you dearly and wish you happiness and lots of laughter during the new club year!

Our May Adventures
We packed a lot of activities into the month of May! At our May Luncheon, we awarded our scholarships and community grants (schol, right) and installed the 2019-2020 FLASC board. Our May Outing took us to the Lee Playhouse for a performance of Anything Goes, while two of our sub clubs enjoyed a meal at a nearby restaurant (Lunch Bunch at Upper Shirley Vineyards and Book Club at Tramonto’s.) The Chatter and Scatter Club had one last meetup
before summer break at Chapel Park, and we also had a fantastic night at Bunco. Even though we won’t be having luncheons over the summer, we will still have outings and sub club meetups, so we’ll see you next month for even more fun!
