FUSE-D Plans to Enjoy Dinner and Good Company on May 17 at Chicago's Pizza in Greenfield
FUSE is excited to be hosting a monthly meeting just for Dads, which we call FUSE-D! FUSE-D meetings offer Dads and other male caregivers a chance to meet casually with each other, share a meal, and talk about their families from a man's perspective.
FUSE-D meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30. May's meeting place is Chicago's Pizza-Greenfield. FUSE will pick up the tab for dinner (up to $12/per person). Dads who choose to purchase alcohol will need to pay for those on a separate check. Meetings are hosted by Wade Davison. Just ask to be directed to the FUSE Dads table when you arrive. This is the last FUSE-D get together before summer break, so please join us and bring a friend!
