Hi Everyone and welcome to all the new members!

It's that time of year again for our annual 4th of July BBQ. Unfortunately, as the 4th of July is mid-week and as many of us are unable to take the day off work, we will be celebrating on Saturday the 6th of July this year.....As in the past, burgers, hot dogs (chili dogs too), salads and drinks (soft drinks and juices) will be provided but everyone is welcome to bring a dish or their favorite bbq items or drinks. Hopefully the weather will as spectacular as it has been in the past and we have a great turnout. If you have any questions or need directions please contact me on 07812440725. Please RSVP as soon as possible so I can make sure we have enough for everyone.

Hope to see y'all soon!

Heather

    Had a really great time at the BBQ. It was fabulous seeing everyone and meeting all the fantastic new folks. Thanks for having us Heather and Matt. :-)

    Had a fabulous time, Heather and her family are very generous to have us all over. I was grateful for the Kool Aid and Pumpkin Pie. It was also interesting to see why everyone had come to the UK and their different versions of events. I think we all agreed that we miss American food - even the stupid stuff like Wendy's and Taco Bell lol

    We all had a great time, the girls are already asking if we can go again next year! It was nice to celebrate the day with fellow expats.

      Hi Carolyn Heather's hubby here feel free to pop by if you get chance, things don't usual start till around 1pm anyway. Heather has been asking for people to bring along something if possible ie drinks, snacks or a dessert. Looks like it's going to be a big turn out & most are new folks + the weather is looking good.

    I'm still happy to offer lift if required. But sounds like a very party bus arrangement going on! Short of that I can taxi people to and from the bus stop in the village!
