  • Michael's Boat



April 14, 2013


Michael has invited us all to celebrate the purchase of his new home, a boat on the Marne River.  RER A or E and a 10-15 minute walk from the Train Station


So to kick off  Spring for the Paris50+ ers




A  Boat Warming Picnic

 With a Morrocan Lunch


Bring a Beverage to share - BYOB



20 Euros and a bottle of wine

Details below


There are two picnic tables beside the moring so there will be space to sit, places to stand, and places on the boat.  Rain or shine!!  Hoping for a beautiful day as the weather is forecast at around 20 C.  However, if it is chilly, we can surry indoors to a warm covered area that has been prearranged by Michael just next door to his boat.  We don’t have to limit the number of people that want to come as all activities will be outdoors or in the covered area.  So, Think Sunshine!


Michael has arranged for a good Moroccan friend to do the cooking and promises to give you a wonderful meal you won’t forget.  As his friend will have to purchase and prepare the food ahead of time, we will need to know how many will attend.  If you would like to come, you may prepay by check or by PayPal for the meal. (Instructions below)


Bring along a beverage to share. If you plan to drink the entire bottle, bring two!


Patricia will provide all eating utensils, napkins, cups and necessary items for a picnic.  So…put on your jeans, your deck shoes and come along to have some great fun, good conversation and a chance to meet new friends.


Directions will only be sent to those who PrePay.  PrePay either by

 Check or by PayPal



If you wish to pay by check, email Patricia for her address at [masked]    20 Euros per person


If you wish to pay by PayPal, (accepts major credit cards and bank cards) however there is a small process fee of 1,25    21,25 per person

[masked] is the Patricia’s account at PayPal.


Cut off for receipt of payments will be Wednesday, April 10th
