Dear members and friends of KFES!
This is to inform you of a change of venue for our monthly luncheons. Instead of meeting at the Holiday Inn in Clearwater, we will meet on Sunday, May 2, 2010 at Mattison’s Riverside Restaurant 1200 1st Ave. W, in Bradenton. The time is still 2 p.m. Each individual/couple will be ordering from the restaurant menu and paying his/her/their own lunch bill. A room has been reserved for our members; just ask the host to guide you when you arrive. We will be trying out the venue on that Sunday so we can decide if we would like to meet there for next year’s get-togethers. So, please attend and offer your opinion! The food is delicious and the view wonderful!! For more information, contact:
Mr. Rein Raja at (727) 866-2614, firstname.lastname@example.org
Ms. Maare Kuuskvere at (941) 795-6835, email@example.com
Directions: From the north, take 275 south, across the Sunshine Skyway bridge and follow Rt 19 to business 41 (the signs will direct you toward Bradenton), drive through the city of Palmetto and cross the Manatee river, turn right on 3rd Ave. and right again on 12th street and the restaurant will be directly ahead. There is plenty of space for parking.
From the south, take Rt 41 to Manatee Ave., make a left turn and drive to 12th street, make a right turn and the restaurant is directly ahead. If you travel on Interstate 75, take the Bradenton exit for Rt. 64 (Manatee Ave.) and proceed to 12th Street W, take a right, and you will see the restaurant at the end of the street, by the river.
