Provisional Class Superbowl Social

By Lisa Hammon, Provisional Committee

Provisionals enjoy the
Superbowl Social
Who can believe we are half way through our provisional year? The time has certainly gone by fast, and we have been very busy. Last Thursday, Merrill's mentor group hosted a Superbowl Social for the Provisional Class. About 20 provisionals and mentors gathered at The Tied House in Mountain View for food, fun, and cocktails. We snacked on fried zucchini, quesadillas and slider bites while chatting about the upcoming Superbowl. Angie Klein couldn't be more excited for the New England Patriots; she and her husband are huge fans. While some are excited, others are still mourning the fact that the 49ers will not be in it. "It's a little like salt in the wound," said provisional Jessica Christian.

Overall, this was a fun gathering to celebrate the end of the week and a great opportunity to meet new people. "The Junior League has provided many fun opportunities to get to know local ladies and broaden my network. At times, I work from home so I crave social interaction in the evenings. I always enjoy meeting new, interesting people. Since this happy hour was such an informal setting, it was nice to be able to bring significant others," said provisional Beckie Callahan. We reminisced over previous events from our Provisional year - cookie exchange, home tours, etc. - and are looking forward to future ones, such as Stilettos and Self-Defense and Kids in the Kitchen. Can't wait to see what the rest of our provisional year has in store for us!
