Darwin's Birthday Party

  • February 10, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • Crestwood Women's Center

The lunch will consist of NAFA providing a main staple or two and door prizes and such; everyone else brings potluck for sides/ bread/ dessert/ salads, etc.

Please sign up below with what you are bringing (in the comments for now) so we have enough food for everyone. Otherwise we will have to fight for food in a "survival of the fittest" death match. ;-)

Also ... Food will be served at 1:30 pm. Please make sure that your dish is there before then and you bring a serving utensil with you if needed.

Watch this space for further details!

This will be a kid friendly event, we are working on activities for both the kiddos and adults. More to come later, but let's get this going now. PARENTS -- Make sure that you bring a bag, bucket or basket for your child as we will be doing a dino egg hunt!  ALSO, Please note how many children you are bringing and their ages - that will help our awesome kids activity committee plan!

We will have games and balloons for the kids (young and not-so-young). Fundraiser raffle and some NAFA merchandise for sale, SO BRING CASH - if you don't support our group, who will? .... IF you have anything that you would like to donate to the raffle, please bring it with you by 1:00 pm.

If you have any more suggestions or ideas, let us hear them!
