Hippie Convention.

Dust off your mod boots, slip into your bell bottoms and tie dye threads. We are going to sing to the 60's hits and munch and marvel at the wild garb we wear. 

If you play an instrument bring it,  even if it's a trombone, accordion, or tuba. We will have a jam session, we have a keyboard and some percussion instruments.

Bring a poster, if you like we can donate them. Paint one while you are here. I have poster materials.

There will be Door Prizes and Beads and Music and TV show CD's from the 60's.

If you were here for the last Hippie Party, you get the idea of what you are about to experience. We will play the "Crazy Hippie Game" Tell us your craziest 60's story. (If you were old enough to be there and young enough to remember.)

They say that if you remember the 60's, you weren't there.

Bring a dish to share and what you want to drink. I will make Jello Shots and another dish to be decided.

The $10 covers the door prizes, beads, Cd's and plates, cups and condiments.

RSVP responsibly please. We are needing an accurate RSVP to be sure we have plenty of prizes and beads.

    IMHO you should send an email to all those who did not pay, just to be sure that they are actually coming...Those on the waiting list will be glad you did!

    Please remember we have to police this RSVP list very carefully. If you don't have a ticket or are not on the list we will have to turn you away. If you bring a guest not on the list we sadly have to say No.

    The wine rack is for the the prepaid drawing. We will have a plant or hopefully a dish garden those are cool.
    I just finished mounting the replica Woodstock tickets. I am ready.
    The best part is (I think) we are putting cash in 3 piggy banks and drawing 3 people to win this. Not to mention the a pet portrait, certificate. Music, food, Friends and prizes, Just the way a Hippie convention should be. Sign up ends and we have a few on the waiting list. I will try to get everyone in.

    Love the ticket idea. Have you tried setting up a payment account on Google Checkout. Its like Pay Pal but a bit easier to set up. Pay Pal is the one everyone is familiar with. If you need help setting them up let me know as I have them both.

    I printed a bunch of tickets an put them on "Will Call" just in case..

    Do not mail, please place on "will call"...Save a stamp, save a tree! Thanks

    January 7, 2012

    I can mail them if needed or you can Pick up at the party. Sometimes email programs may prevent you from opening files it feels may be damaging.

    January 7, 2012

  • Terry Goldman K.

    I did just get something, with a file which I could not open!

    January 7, 2012

  • Ron

    If you prepaid and haven't gotten your ticket let me know. They have just been sent out

    January 7, 2012

  • Ron

    I am emailing tickets out today. Print them and bring to the party, We can put these On "Will Call" if you can't print them. Remember you will get another special ticked for a Special drawing. Bring that too. I will need your email address to send an attachment. Meetup doesn't give anyone email address even organizers.

    MONEY: Thanks for letting me know that my check arrived. I wish more people would pre-pay, as it makes party planning so much easier...And it IS a very monumental task!
    FOOD: I can make my famous Blintz Souffle, yet again. OK?
    MUSIC: I've included 250 songs from the 60's, not necessarily in the order of fave to worst!
    Happy, Healthy & Groovy New Year To Y'all,

    If EVERYONE sent a check, you would have a more accurate RSVP count!

  • Ron

    If you want to prepay that is great. I don't have pay-pal so mail a check. Meetup has a spot for me to note payments. This will be an awesome party. Glad we can do this again.

    1 · December 20, 2011

  • Terry Goldman K.

    Can I pay ahead of time? Do you accept paypal? I can mail a check...Pre-paying, to me, is the most responsible way to go!
