The church book club, Resurrection Readers, will hold the annual re-organization picnic at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 1. Jan Caroccio will host the get-together. It will feature good food and conversation as well as a multitude of books. After eating, the group will formulate a summer reading list. From this list they will determine the 10 monthly selections for the coming year. 

"If anyone has been thinking of seeing what we're all about, we encourage you to join us," says Sally Sarkissian. "We do ask everyone to bring a dish to pass and, of course, BYOB (bring your own books), as these are the books from which we make our choices."

For more information, please call 315-342-2417.

Res Readers meets at 6:30 p.m. the first Monday of the month from September to June. Meetings are usually in the parlor of the church.
