Let's celebrate the Fourth of July by gathering with old friends and new with a potluck picnic on Thursday July 4th from 11am til Dark at the Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park. For the past four years, we have joined by over 120 friends from several different Meet Up Groups.
There will be fireworks after the picnic at the waterfront park, sponsored by the town of Dobbs Ferry -- so we'll be in a perfect position to see some great stuff! Fireworks start around 9:30 -- or when it's dark enough.. and go on for about an hour... PLEASE NOTE: ALL PICNIC SUPPLIES MUST BE CLEANED UP BEFORE IT GETS DARK AND THE CROWD STARTS COMING IN FOR THE FIREWORKS... Please be considerate and help out...
Bring your favorite PRE-COOKED PICNIC FOODS -- THERE WILL NOT BE GRILLS THIS YEAR -- with enough to go around. Please put labels on any utensils and containers so you get your stuff back at the end of the day! :)
PLEASE RSVP with what YOU are going to bring so we don't have 5 bowls of potato salad and no fried chicken or chicken salad!
I'm also asking everyone to pitch in $3 for paper goods, cups, utensils, ice, etc = please pay VIKKI at the picnic.
Please bring your own beer, soda, wine, water, mixed drinks...but we'll have to keep our alcohol in plastic cups and make our mixed drinks before arriving (please put in thermos or other plastic containers) - park policy.
If folks have a volleyball net, or frisbee, or softball/mitts/bats/balls, bring 'em! we'll set up an impromptu game or three.. just RSVP with what you're bringing. Also bring your chairs, blankets, sunscreen and hats, plus cards, games, etc, for a fun afternoon in the park.
