1st Annual SPLASH Potluck Picnic in the Park!

  • This location is shown only to members

Hello Friends!

I am pleased to announce that we will be holding the 1st Annual SPLASH Potluck Picnic in the Park to celebrate the one year SPLASH anniversary!  Please join us on Sunday, 14 September, at Arcadia County Park on Santa Anita Ave.

Here's the idea:

>  Family friendly!  Bring the whole gang, including friends!

>  I'm sorry, but NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED!

>  Potluck format:  bring a main dish or side dish or dessert to feed 4-6 people. Also bring 4-6 of whatever you like to drink (non-alcoholic).  I will come up with a list for folks to post what they're bringing.

> We will need volunteers to provide the following things/services: 

- ice chests (with ice!)

- paper/biodegradable plates, napkins, utensils, and cups

- cooking/grilling

- organizing/serving

- set up/clean up crew (willing to arrive early or stay late)

- balls (baseball, soccer, football, etc.), frisbees, other outside games 

Here is a little bit of info on the park (including pictures of the Oaktree area we are reserving):

http://reservations.lacounty.gov/reservations/facilityDetails.asp?temp_facility_idno=6534

It is **NOT REQUIRED**, but I will be accepting donations ($1 per person?) to cover the cost of reserving the picnic area.

Looking forward to seeing everyone - this will be fun!!! 

-Jo

    Hi Jo,

    Susie and I will be bringing Honey Garlic Meatballs, a Pasta Salad and a store-bought pie or cake for dessert. We'll also bring a couple of medium size coolers with ice, some large Dixie cups and some plastic sectioned plates.

    Ok my friends! So far only one person has said what he will bring (merci Guy!) - lasagne. So please chime in with what you plan to bring. I will be a "gap filler" (Jo of the Gaps?? haha) and bring whatever we're short on food-wise. I'll also bring charcoal, at least one ice chest, and some plates/utensils/napkins. So we need: stuff to BBQ, side dishes, salads, drinks (non-alcoholic!!!!), and desert. Please respond here with what you will bring.

    Thanks!

      Aw, that's too bad. I was going to bring a couple of bottles of wine. But I guess Iced Tea and Lemonade will fair. :)

    I was going to make something, but it seems like I will need to buy something right before the picnic, since I have a prior engagement with no fridge available.

    • Jo

      No problem at all, it doesn't have to be homemade!

      August 29, 2014

  • Christine G. P.

    I am looking forward to this! Can't wait to meet all of you! :)
