Assalam Wa Alaikum!
Since we are part of MECA (Muslim Establishing Communities of America), I thought it would be a good idea to join them for a BBQ.
Please see the details below:
The summer is back and once again are we getting ready to celebrate its spirit. Come join us under an open sky at the Del Rey Lagoon, on June 19th, to enjoy some delicious BBQ, at a beautiful location, and with great company.
Del Ray Lagoon is "A beautiful park with a lagoon full of ducks, a baseball field, a basketball court, picnic areas, and a children's playground. Walk north about a block to the M...arina Channel, where the boats pass by as they go in and out to sea. Walk west over the dunes to the ocean....you are right there."
THE PARK CLOSES AT SUNSET, SO PLEASE ARRIVE PROMPTLY!
MECA will be taking care of all food arrangement this month! To help cover costs, we are asking guests to donate $10/Adult and $5/Child.
Although there are some picnic benches available, you may want to bring a blanket to sit on and for prayer. We also encourage you to bring frisbees, basketballs, footballs, etc.!
MECA (Muslims Establishing Community in America) was formed to help build lasting relationships in the Southern California Muslim community through social activities, education, and outreach. MECA is primarily focused on individuals who have left undergraduate studies and are looking to establish or re-establish that sense of community for themselves. MECA members include those who are single, married or married with young children.
