First Fridays

For February 2015, everyone was hibernating AGAIN. Our little group of 4, plus our wonderful waitress, Karen still had a wonderful time.

SNOW DAY Jan. 9, 2015. Our first REF breakfast of the new year had only 3 attendees. Most folks, including myself, chose to stay home due to the snowy weather. Our wonderful waitress, Karen, sat in for the photo to make it 4. Hope to see everyone next month.

CT 4th district congressman Jim Himes stopped in for a visit at our July breakfast

Don't ask (about the arm).

Drop-in breakfasts at the Circle Diner for 2021 are:  J une 4, July 2, August 6, October 1, and Nov. 5. 9:30-on. No Diner Breakfast in September due to the "Welcome Back" breakfast: at Tashua Knolls on Thursday, Sept 23 (details upcoming)   All attending these functions must be vaccinated!!!  Please mark the above dates on your calendar
Every first Friday of the month (except for December when we have the Holiday party and July when we avoid the weekend of July 4) we have our regular REF breakfasts from 9:30 on at the Circle Diner (copy and paste)
. See our "Welcome Back" page for full details and a description of our special "Welcome Back" breakfast in the fall.  Click on (copy and paste)   for photos of that special event. 

Our monthly breakfasts are a way for members to connect and share news with each other. The food is good, and the atmosphere is friendly. Some members drop in just to chat for a few minutes. Most stay for breakfast (we order and pay individually). Folks leave according to the demands of their own schedules. We each pay our own tab.  A good time is had by all!!! Save these dates to come and socialize with other members.   ***Breakfasts are always subject to weather conditions. Members use their judgment regarding whether or not they choose to brave the elements to come out for a cozy breakfast and some friendly conversation.

I had such a great time seeing so many of my friends at the REF breakfast on September 12th. It was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with everyone.
