Dull Men's Club
Time: 10:00 – 11:00 AM
Leader: Bernie Gillon
The Northborough chapter of the Dull Men’s Club is looking for a few more dull men who celebrate the ordinary. It is a place where dull men share thoughts and experiences, free from glitz and glam, free from pressures to be in and trendy. We are free instead to enjoy simple, ordinary things. It is an opportunity to hang-out and to chat about issues of great or little importance. If you have a good or bad joke to share bring it. Serious politics or religion are strictly verboten subjects. We are not boring and we are not grumpy. Our favorite flavor is vanilla and our favorite color is gray. We talk about any topic that is of interest to the group from computers to Bee Honey. Check out our international Dull Men’s Club Website www.dullmensclub.com and come join us.
