Monthly Family Event - Fort Steilacoom Park - Lake Picnic Area

Beginning in September, we will pick a location for a family friendly event on a Saturday or Sunday. This is an opportunity for members to contribute without making a fulltime committment.  Perhaps we should make it a potluck too?

I'll pick the location this time (the websites make it sound pretty good and you don't have to make a reservation unless you want a covered spot with kitchen/cooking.

Meet at:  Lakeside Picnic Area (Note:  Dog park area does not allow food.)

Inclement Weather Location:  Cascade Bagel, 6115 Motor Ave, Lakewood, WA (across the street from Yorkshire Yarns). They are open 7am - 3pm.

    So sorry that I didn't attend! I had a family emergency and didn't get back until yesterday evening. I almost missed the Kid Rock concert too. I hope those who did brave the weather and made it to the bagel shop had a good time.

    September 22, 2013

  • Meredith

    Sorry, the weather is just too bad to meet today. Please forgive us.

    • Meredith

      We're going to the bagel shop I instead. The people there are nice and so your service dig should be ok

      September 22, 2013

  • Caroline

    Are we just meeting at this bagel place, since it looks like wind and rain?

    September 21, 2013

    • Meredith

      Yep I'm going to be over there soon.

    FYI- The bagel shop has a little area for kids and a few toys for them too.

    September 20, 2013

    Is there a backup plan if it rains? Right now it is showing 50% chance of rain. There is a Starbucks close by and a bagel shop that could accommodate us too.

    September 19, 2013

    • Tina M.

      Can you please post the name and address information for the bagel shop? Thanks.

      September 19, 2013

    • Meredith

      It is Cascade Bagel, 6115 Motor Ave, Lakewood, WA. It is across the street from Yorkshire Yarns. They are open 7-3.

    Ft. Steilacoom sounds wonderful and just so happens that day is available for me. I am not up for cooking so what about BYO (bring your own) Subway who is doing $5.00 foot longs and just meet with out worrying about anything? Then maybe having a few desserts for afterward? #Just a thought....

    I suggest simple, shareable dishes. I will probably bring a pasta salad. Don't count on being able to warm anything up. I have a small stock of paper plates and plastic silverware and I'll bring that, but we could use napkins and/or paper towels. Drinks? Things like cold cuts, chips & dip, vegetable or fruit trays would also work well.

      I buy paper towels at Costco, so I can bring a roll of those.

      September 5, 2013

  • Caroline

    It sounds like fun! I hope the weather is nice

    September 5, 2013

  • Meredith

    The 22nd works for us. What should we bring?

    September 4, 2013

  • Caroline

    I like Sundays. Just the 15th doesn't work

    September 3, 2013

  • Tina M.

    I need to change this back to Sunday. In trying to accomodate everyone else, I forgot that I have a Saturday class on both 14 & 21 September. Otherwise, I need someone to volunteer to host!!!

    September 3, 2013

  • Caroline

    Oh who doesn't love a parachute? Are we going to make this a potluck? Sounds fun

      If we're going to potluck, I have a new crockpot I want to use! I want to try crock mac n cheese.

      September 3, 2013

  • Tina M.

    Perhaps we could bring our "charity" yarn and work on the quilt blocks and eat :-)

    I'll bring a parachute thing for the kids to play with. (Big, round, rainbow colored with handles on the ends. Big enough, I think, for ten kids to each have a handle.)

    The 15th doesn't work

    The weekend immediately following the holiday won't work for me. Any other Sunday in September would work. Or ... someone could host this for the group ...

    August 29, 2013

    • Meredith

      I'm open to whatever Sunday

      August 29, 2013

      Does it have to be on a Sunday?

      August 29, 2013

  • Caroline

    Is everyone bringing knitting?

    August 27, 2013

    • Tina M.

      That's the plan!

      August 29, 2013

  • Caroline

    That works for me

    August 27, 2013

  • Meredith

    I'm open Sunday 9/8 if that works for everyone.
