Meet Up Anniversary Party, Cookout and Games

  • Jul 13, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • Catherine's Home

Over the years, our group has had hundreds of fun events and a lot of great friendships have been formed. We now have over 3,000 members! Join us for a special celebration for the 6th anniversary of our meet-up group! We will be enjoying a Cookout, drinks, outdoor games and some board games. Guests are asked for a $10 payment at the party to cover the cost of food and supplies. Please bring your own alcohol or other beverage of choice to enjoy at the party!

We can play outdoor games including whiffleball and frisbee, along with some fun board games indoors. Please bring a lawn chair too.

Food will include:

Hamburgers, hotdogs, shrimp, pasta salad, potato salad, cole slaw, fresh corn, salad, cheese/crackers, chips/dips, fruit, desserts, ice cream sundae bar and some other good things too!

If a couple of people would like to come a little earlier and help set up, that would be great- please send me a message. I'll also need a couple of volunteers to help with the grill!

If you would like to carpool, please specify it in your RSVP and members can arrange carpooling with each other. I live on a quiet residential street, so there is plenty of easy, free street parking.

Please only sign up if you can definitely attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP. I need to have an accurate headcount, so I know how much food to purchase.

We look forward to seeing you for a great summer party! If you are new to the group or haven't been to an event in a while- then be sure to join us.

This event is rain or shine!

    If you still need a hand with the grill (or an alternate), I can do that. Before I head down, would you like me to make a batch of cookies or something for the dessert table?

  • Laura

    Hi, I'd really love to come to this event. Is anyone driving from the Boston area? I live in Winthrop and I don't have a car. Would be happy to pitch in for gas. I can get to any T stop.

    July 13, 2013

  • Catherine

    Hi- I emailed everyone yesterday with my address (please let me know if you didn't get it). Please be sure to update your RSVP- I need an accurate headcount so that I know how much food to purchase. Please don't wait until Saturday to change your RSVP. Weather is looking great for Saturday! (even if it rains- we're still partying!)

  • Hari ".

    Is this going to be all the way in Hopedale?

    July 11, 2013

    • Kathy

      Yes but Catherine's parties are worth it!!

      1 · July 12, 2013

    • Charlie L

      It's Hopedale...not Housatonic. And with the people in this group, even Housatonic would be worth the ride.

  • Joanna

    Don't think I've been to a Beantown event yet. Is it still okay to R.S.V.P. for this party?
