Meetup details changed: Orphan Thanksgiving Potluck Picnic In The Park ~ Hollywood

Group Organizer
Springfield, VT
Hello Foodie Friends,

Our Orphan Thanksgiving Potluck Picnic is really shaping up! We currently have 23 members signed up and a fabulous Thanksgiving meal planned! Those attending, we could use folding tables and chairs/camp chairs if anyone has some as we will be exceeding the number of picnic tables available. Option B is is people can bring some blankets but we might also need waterproof tarps as the lawn is often damp for watering or rain. If anyone has a boombox and music, that might be a nice touch.

I might also need someone to volunteer to arrive early to stop by my place to help me bring some stuff to this event. I'm one block before the park entrance, so it is not at all out of the way, but I will need a reliable person to get to my place about 11:15am. Please email me if you can help.

Thanksgiving weather forecast is high of 73 degrees 10% chance of rain. If raining or 50% chance of rain, unfortunately, the event will have to be cancelled, but so far... it's looking good! Bring some warm clothes just in case as this park has a micro-climate and usually is a few degrees cooler than the forecast.
