END OF SUMMER YANKEE SWAP - DOCKSIDE, WAKEFIELD, MA

Hi Ladies:

We all love our Christmas Yankee Swap......why not have a end of summer YANKEE SWAP and enjoy a night out,  a meal together and the fun of a Yankee Swap.

I have to pay to reserve the room, with that being said I need to have a minimum and a maximum amount of attendees.  Please only rsvp if you have the date free and can make it!

This will be same format as last two.....buffet meal and bill split amongst the attendees.

GIFTS:  Please bring something new with approximate value of $25, no used gifts please!!!  No Christmas items (save those for the Christmas swap).  Please when picking a gift have it be age appropriate and relative to the ladies group and be something you would be proud to put your name on:)

If your interested in running the actual swap, you're welcome to volunteer, if not I will gladly do so:)

Please do not ask when event will end, there are to many things to take into consideration with this event to determine an ending time.  If you must have one your guess is as good as mine:)

MINIMUM 20, MAXIMUM 40

IF THERE IS A WAITLIST PLEASE GET ON IT.....WE ALWAYS FIT EVERYONE IN:) BASED ON CANCELLATIONS WE RECEIVE WEEK OF EVENT:)

    I'm so happy you found the ring, I too said a little prayer that it would show up.

      Thanks Mary.. I know after all this we are all believers of divine intervention.. I'm sorry Sue for all these messages.. I know once before you asked that we stop sending comments. It has just made me feel so much better to know the closeness and caring all the ladies in our group.

    So happy it worked out for you-never in a million yrs. expected to see the ring when I pulled out the box. I believe divine intervention occurred, also. I'll look for your e-mail to set a time, Paula. Have a great day

    • Paula

      THANK YOU AGAIN.. VERY MUCH.. SEE YOU TOMORROW.

      September 16, 2013

  • Paula

    Hi Carol, OMG.. thank you so much.. I honestly feel St. Anthony had a hand in this recovery of the ring.... Just tell me where you live and I will meet you there or nearby to pick it up.. whenever it's convenient for you.. I'm retired so I'm sure we can work out a time.
    I'll follow this up with a private email to you so you can give me your info. I'm so happy and I thank everyone for their well wishes.

    Paula, I am sorry to hear you lost your ring. Do you recall if you had it on when you were putting on your beautiful new bracelet? Maybe the restaurant found it when they cleaned up after we left. I hope you find it...

    September 15, 2013

    • Carol Carrasco T.

      OMG-I usually don't read these, but for some reason did. I just went and checked the bottom of the bag of the spice rack, and the ring was lying under the box. Paula, how do you want to pick it up?

    I checked the bag that the black and white tote bag was on but there was no ring. The tote bag itself was zipped up so it couldn't have fallen in it. Sorry. I was hoping I would find it at the bottom of the bag

    September 15, 2013

    • Paula

      thanks for looking... I appreciate it

      September 15, 2013

  • Paula

    I had a good time tonight with everyone..
    I am praying that my lost ring turns up somehow.
    It could have fallen off anywhere during today/tonight..
