Hiii Everyone <3

One of our AWESOME organizers within the *CHEERS!* Visalia branch is opening her home up for an Independence Day Celebration filled with swimming, social entertainment, friends, and fun--!!

If you haven't met
Janice, this will be a great opportunity to visit and get to know her. She's bubbly, kind, caring... and loves to party! 
 
The weather will be hottttt so come on out and cool down in a sparkling blue pool and relax with a great new crowd!

Remember, we go by the saying "There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met yet!"
 

Potluck:
Feel free to bring something to share with everyone! She'll have a BBQ grill all fired up for those who wish to bring some delicious marinated meat. A side dish, chips/salsa/dip works too!

BYOB:
Bring your own beer/beverage! =) We'll do a little light/casual/social drinking - so just bring what you like!

Fun & Games:
Janice has a wii with cool sportsy games like bowling/etc if anyone is interested ~ it would be fun to have some balls to toss around the pool as well ;D

If there are any more updates...we'll let you know as the date gets closer. If you have questions, comment with us down below and we'll get right back to you.

    Daannnnnnnng! WHAT A PARTY JANICE CAN THROW(!!)... haha.... I'm soooo exhausted from a great day of fun so I'll keep it simple. We had SOOOOOO MANY MEN... (for a change, right?!) Handsome men(!) from Bakersfield, Visalia, Fresno, and even Chicago! After I told Mike (from Bakersfield) that we usually have MORE women than men (typically) he said that it's about QUALITY, not quantity! hahaaa what a sweetheart. It was a huge meet & greet as most people were introduced for the first time today. We broke the ice, did a lot of swimming, splashed around on the pool toys, and got extra wet from the guys' CANNON BALLS... ! Dave set the tone with FABULOUS DANCE MUSIC of all genres so the ladies and gents could DANCE --(!) and boy was it YOUTUBE WORTHY haha =) and trust me... it will be on youtube eventually, haha--- so anyways, thanks to everyone who went!! A lot of us sure traveled the miles to get to this fun party and it was totally worth it. Thanks again Janice for putting on a show! <3

      And ladies -- I directed ALL the men to our FRESNO meetups, loll Some of the guys were new and I just had to tell them ... that we actually do have gals in the group! Next time we get together it wont be on a holiday because a lot of people had other commitments/etc - so I think we'll get an even bigger crowd next time... the pics and vid are great - i'll post tomorrow

    I'm going to have room available if anyone is interested in riding with me. My Tahoe will be in the shop for a few days (AC Clutch went out so no AC, ah!) so I'm borrowing a vehicle from a relative (2007 Chevy Silverado) so there will comfortably be room for 3 people if anyone is interested in going with me. I will be leaving Fresno at 2PM - and will arrive back in Fresno at 8:30PM. I can't do any pickups or drop offs - but if you would like to meet me at my relatives house (of whom I borrowing this vehicle from) they live over by Shaw/41. You can meet me at their house or at a nearby parking lot (there is a CVS about a block away) ~ you can park there and hop in my ride that way when we get back into town, I'll return the vehicle I'm driving and your vehicle will be there, or very close by. Hopefully I worded that clearly enough. So yeah! Good times ahead. I'll pay for gas, you just gotta hop awwwn in! We'll blast the AC put on some music and head on out! =)
