It’s “A Hard Day’s Night” with the Beatles Flashback Band tonight. This event sold out so fast—in just 36 hours—that we added overflow seating in Room G! This is the last time this year that the Boomers are bringing food trucks to Oakmont, so don’t miss out. Come to the Berger Center at 5 p.m. for Chicago Hot Dogs, Palooza Bunslinger, Velasco Mexican Food, and sweets from Flour Creations Bakery.

• Go to the beach. • Drink wine. (Actually, you can do this any time and make every day Relaxation Day.) Our very first Happy Hour Social, Pizza Palooza, is happening on September 10 (the second Thursday instead of the usual third Thursday.) This will be a mellow get-together, and a chance to catch up with friends you’ve missed over the summer. We have a great evening planned, and we hope all of our members will join us for assorted pizza pies from the Union Hotel. This free event is for our members only. Just bring your favorite beverages and desserts. Get on your feet and dance to a specially selected Boomer Music Mix. Let’s kick off our fall social schedule with a swinging start! You’ll need to RSVP to this one so that we are sure to have enough pizza for everyone. WHEN: September 10, 6–9 p.m. WHERE: Berger Center COST: Free—members only, please BRING: BYOB (and desserts)

More information to come in future editions of the Oakmont News.

Here are some great ways to celebrate Relaxation Day: • Go to a spa. • Play golf (but only if you can do so without going crazy!) • Take a bath. • Do some gardening (but no heavy lifting).
