Bid Cathie Adieu - Potluck Event

It is with great sadness that I plan this particular event.

Cathie is one of the original members of NoVA Crocheters and has been a regular attendee over the last 7+ years. She's also one of the most giving women I've had the pleasure of knowing. Now she's pulling up stakes and moving west. She will be greatly missed!

Please join us for a special event to celebrate Cathie and all she's brought to our group. Whether you're new to the group or have known Cathie for years, you're welcome to join us for this celebration.

This event will be held at Grace Episcopal Church, which is located a half block from the intersection of W. Glebe and Russell, in the Del Ray area of Alexandria.  There is a private parking lot with plenty of spaces -- feel free to park anywhere in the lot other than the row furthest from the church.  The entrance is locked, so please call the number posted on the door upon arrival for entry.

This is a potluck event.  Please bring a dish to share.  When you RSVP, please add a comment about the dish you're bringing.  If you aren't sure of the specifics, please list a type of dish (savory, salty, sweet, etc.) and update it once you have decided.  Before choosing a dish, please review the items already posted and try to bring something that will add variety and round out the meal.  This event will start at 1 p.m. and will last approximately three hours.  If you aren't able to come for the entire event, it's okay just to stop in to say hello (and goodbye).

Otherwise, please bring your current project(s) and plan to spend a pleasant afternoon with friends and fiber arts.

If you'd like to participate in a special tribute to Cathie, please contact me directly via meetup messaging for more information.

    Pam,
    We missed you but Cathie shared your card with us. Erika hosted another terrific shindig. Great people paying homage to a great person. Wish you were here.

    I went by the church today and noticed that the building has several entrances. Where should we enter the building?

      Double glass doors adjacent to the large parking lot. Several handicapped parking spots just past the doors as you drive into the lot. Parking in the spots under the tree is actually closer, but you'd need to go up one step to the doors. Ramp is by the handicapped spots.

    Cathie is one of a kind! I will miss her but I know she will be sending us those little posters (I don't know what they are called) from wherever she is.
