Just a quick update about "Lingering Summer Picnic/Party" at my house on August 21st. I hope everyone who has RSVP'd "yes" is still coming. If not, please remember to change your RSVP. If you haven't RSVP'd yet...GET ON BOARD...IT'S THE BASH OF THE SUMMER!!! OVER 125 TO DATE AND THE LIST IS STILL GROWING!
Anyway, many folks have asked me what to bring...what do I need? I have put together a simple list of things that you may want to consider. Hope you find it helpful...
cold cut platter
mayo & mustard
lettuce & tomato (sliced)
chips and/or dips
cases of water
any type of entree (pasta, rice,baked ham,cooked chicken, etc.)
paper goods (plates, silverware, napkins, hot and cold cups...all sizes)
and whatever else you can invent...
I have many salads (several varieties) on the way...a pretty fair amount of fruit and fruit salads...some appetizers...and some desserts. So, the list above is just a guideline as to what things I do not have yet. You are free,however, to bring whatever you choose...including your children and friends, if you wish...lol.
Games...now here are some thoughts...bocce, horseshoes, badminton, chess, board games, and cards (some may want to get a card game going). Anything else (game) you can think of...please bring!
Don't forget a beach chair, folding chair or sport chair. I have many chairs but with over 100 coming, I will need more. If anyone has tables they can bring, please let me know. PLEASE...PLEASE...BRING MOSQUITO OR BUG SPRAY! The mosquitos here in Wolcott will carry you away if you stand still...lol. So, keep dancing and keep spraying...you'll be fine.
This is a BYOB event...whatever your pleasure...it's up to you. Remember ice and coolers if you have them.
The band will start playing at 7 pm and we will hang out, play games, eat and enjoy each other until then. Come early and enjoy the day. When, and if you get tired, just sit under my grapevine or a big sprawling tree and take it all in until you catch your second wind.
BTW...the band is an R & B jazzy type...very funky and VERY danceable. As a matter of fact, I dare you to sit thru Troy's performance!!! He will have you on your feet before you know it. So, come and enjoy him...
Parking...hmmm...what can I say. Parking is available, but best if you can carpool or meet at a commuter parking lot and come in groups. I do have a large driveway that will hold about 15-20 cars, however, remember to pull straight up and do NOT stop in the middle of the drive. There is also plenty of road parking. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE GRASS!!!!!
I am at 319 Todd Road in Wolcott and I will have red balloons on my mailbox so you will not miss the house. If I have forgotten anything...please let me know. You can email me or feel free to call me at[masked]!
Thanks for your patience insofar as this lengthy email goes...but I'm trying to cover everything. If you have RSVP'd yes...thanks. If you have not RSVP'd yet...do join us! It will be a blast and a great way to meet many people!!!!!!!
See you all on Saturday Aug.. 20TH...
