Rivers Edge Ladies Luncheons

Our Rivers Edge ladies enjoyed their monthly luncheon in September at the Olde Erie Restaurant in Middletown NY, and in October at The Jolly Onion Inn in Pine Island, NY. Our community ladies go out on the 2nd Thursday of every month to a new and differenct restaurant, always within an hour’s drive from the community. Watch for the email announcement each month. All Rivers Edge ladies are invited, and it’s a great way to make new friends.

An Evening Soiree>>> Soup and Sandwich Party

Sponsored by our Neighbors to Neighbors (“N2N”) Club, on October 18th there was a Soup and Sandwich party at the Clubhouse. This was a very nice social gathering enjoyed by many of our residents. Many thanks to the N2N Committee for putting on this event.
