Come Join Us! 

Celebrating 'HALF-WAY to Christmas'

and Suzan Lee Timmins' and JoAnn Blazek Peters' birthdays!

(all good reasons to get together!)

Saturday, June 25th

11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Chicken Oil Company

3600 College Avenue ~ Bryan

Chicken Oil Company is VERY casual - burgers, fries, beer, etc. - order what you want when you arrive and pay for your own!  Although you don't need a reservation, it would be helpful to be able to give the restaurant an estimate of how many tables and chairs we will need.  So please, let us know if you can join us - please reply to Keith at
