A Day at the Races!

Our next Social Event is on! We are doing A Day at the Races at the Fairgrounds on March 5, Post Time 1:05 PM. Usually we meet in the Clubhouse and enjoy the buffet lunch, but due to staffing shortages (they can’t find workers), the Clubhouse is closed and no buffet will be served. So, we booked Box Suites in the Grandstand that will be together so we can mingle and catch-up on old times. You will be responsible for your drinks and food. If you want food you can go to the concession stands located in the Grandstands. There will be no charge for this event. Each Box sits 6 people. Let us know if you want to sit with someone or it will be first come first served. Contact Gary Savelle at noafc.vp@gmail.com or at 504-777-5294.

Rock-n-Bowl

Another Social Event is scheduled! On April 8 we will be Rocking and Bowling. The event starts at 7:00 with bowling, premium bar drinks and food. This goes on until 9:30. Then you can stay after our event and enjoy the live music. The Band will be none other than The Boogie Men featuring Scott Schmidt. Contact Steve Schmitt at 504-258-5984 to reserve your spot.
