"BEACH PARTY" for Memorial Day Weekend ~Boynton Beach

Come out and join us for a party on the beach. We have found a "WOW"derful shaded picnic  area on the beach. There are several grills and picnic tables all nestled under a shaded area right on the beach.

We are asking for $5 to cover the cost of all paper products, bottled water, condiments, charcoal, table cloths, decoration and sodas. Parking at the park is free, but as in any beach park, parking can be tricky. Please plan for that.

This will be a great way to celebrate with close friends or new friends...maybe even a possible love connection will be found.

This will be a potluck event. You don't want to miss this one. We are starting out the Summer in "WOW" STYLE. 

Since this is a Pot Luck party we usually have several people that help out the day of (and lot’s of hard work before the big party) the party. So I am asking for help once again. Decorations, set-up, food organization ect….

I have some suggestions for items that we need to make this a successful party. As usual all thoughts and ideas are welcome!!!

Please email which of these items you will be bringing: I am putting how many of each item we need….you only need to bring one. Example- if it says; 3 - Cheese Trays - you only need to bring ONE - we are looking for 3 total.

This list will change as we go forward and will evolve as we get new suggestions.

    WOW...That photo of my back side is a very interesting but disturbing photo.... I never realized how bare I was (in the back of my head). How embarrassing... LOL !! What a great party. Thank you Don, Laurie and Liz for such a wonderful day. Great weather, great people, great food and comradery among friends...This is what meetup is all about !!

      Roger - it was all Don and Laurie's effort to put on such a great event. They really donated at good part of their holiday weekend to making it happen. A lot of members, both new and old, were enthusiastic assistants. Everyone had such a great time - I met an acquaintance on the beach that was so impressed with everyone's friendliness that he wants to sign up with WOW! As for the photo, no comment, lol!

      I totally agree with your comment!

    If you are on the internet, you can delete any photo you want.

      While the pic does show a larger side of me than I would like, it is all me. So best if I did what really needs to be done & learn to photoshop the real thing, just lose the weight. I was also trying the lighten the conversation, everyone is so great.

      May 29, 2014

  • Claude

    Ok, well I have a legitimate complaint, really I do. Someone took a pic of me in such an unflattering angle which made me look fat (which I do not believe that I am, lol) and than if that was not enough, posted. Can you please photoshop it?

    May 28, 2014

    • Colette C.

      Claude, you can ask the person who posted the picture of yourself that you don't like to please remove it.

    In the past 5 years since joining Meet up I have been involved in over 10 groups and not all organizers & co-organizers are created equal. Some just throw an event & everyone, especially the new people, are left to fend for themselves & don't receive introductions. In WOW, Laurie and the co-organizers go out of their way to introduce people and care that their members enjoy themselves. Providing a shuttle to the park for members & using one's own car & gas to do it, and another co-organizer or/and member shuttling people is most considerate & thoughtful & I have not seen in done in any of my other Meet-ups. Most of us appreciate everything and can tell the difference. For those who can't and are not happy if they can't complain- - try doing what they do & you will see it is quite challenging. Anyway, you know the saying: "You can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all the people all the time."

    6 · May 27, 2014

  • Colette C.

    It was out of consideration, concern & thoughtfullness that Laurie & Don, created the shuttle from Winn Dixie to Gulfstream Park. They asked me & I accepted. The car that was used is Laurie's, as we'll as the gas. I only used my time.
    So let's ALL give credit, where credit is due, thank you Laurie & Don, for ALL the WOW things you both do.
    My Mother, GOD rest her soul, used to say, "if you can't stand the HEAT in the kitchen, get out".
    BRAVO to ALL the fine griller's too! :-)

    I have been a member of 'WOW" for about eight or nine months and have never been to any event or function that wasn't put together, planned and executed better than Laurie and Don. They are really 'First Rate Event and Party Planners.' I have met so many nice and friendly people every month, that I am forever grateful for their hard work and making everyone who joins our group feel welcome. I couldn't fathom anyone having negative comments on the work and set up that these two beautiful people offer us every month.

    I just want to thank all of the WOW members that made me feel so comfortable at this event and all the others I was fortunate enough to attend.
    Y'all are truly very lucky to have such dedicated organizers and to have each other. I wish I could bring the whole group back to NJ and show you how we party - "Fuggetaboutit". That being said, when members bitch about everything, are never happy and wait to be served, our foolproof solution is to make them a new set of concrete shoes and take them swimming. Of course,
    that's New Jersey. "Fuggetaboutit".

    THANK Y'ALL AGAIN!!!

    Some people are never happy, think they are entitled to special privilege, and are never happy. The meet-ups and all the organizers who do the work have enhanced my life. The majority of us truly appreciate those who do the majority of the work!

      Thank you Stacey

    What a great group and super fun gathering of folks who are friendly and lively. Happy to see so many in the ocean. Lets go there again, even a 4PM might be fun as parking will be available and less work, bring sandwiches or something.

    Sorry if my writing is not very good

      Your writing was perfect. Thanks for trying.

      May 27, 2014

  • Laurie

    As for the complainers, Let me remind you that the organizers of any Meetup especially WOW Mixers do this voluntarily. We do not get paid for a drop of our time, yet we try to go the extra mile to make the events enjoyable for everyone. I personally am charged just to own this group and yesterday I volunteered my car and the cost of my gas to shuttle people when the truth is I clearly stated on the event that parking was going to be trouble. Therefore, if anyone has complains about this events. Please check them at the door.

    4 · May 26, 2014

    • Ann T.

      I don't know how anyone can complain about this group. You & Don go out of your way to make sure everyone has a great time. I have been an organizer of many groups & certainly know about the "complainers."­ See you soon.

    Three cheers and a hip, hip hooray for Laurie and Don for hosting such a great event for this Memorial Day weekend. They have tirelessly planned, set up and arranged for everyone in the "WOW' group to have an great picnic Barbeque this afternoon. I would characterize this event as a "Winner, Outstanding and Wonderful." I would also like to thank everyone who took the time to help set up and cook for us this very hot afternoon, job well done and it is greatly appreciated. There was so much delicious food that I couldn't find any more room in my stomach to taste it all and I love the 'date' that Roger brought with him. We have a great group of friendly people, that makes it all the reason to attend these events. Thank you again for planning and hosting this "A" rated event.
