|Hosted by Grace and Chip Denman|
As the final get together for the 1996-97 season, Chip and Grace Denman invites NCAS to hold an afternoon cookout at their home in Silver Spring. Meet fellow skeptics for an enjoyable afternoon talking about skeptical, credulous, or other relevant or irrelevant topics.
NCAS will provide burgers and hotdogs (and the heat) for cooking. Bring beverages, snacks, salads or desserts to share.
Everyone should RSVP by June 18 in order to get a count of who's coming.
