Celebrate our First Birthday! Pot Luck Picnic.

Last year on June 25th I posted an idea for a new meet-up group aimed for people in their 40-50s. Our very first event was a pot luck picnic held on July 8, 2012. Who would have ever imagined how it would take off! The friendships that have been made! The numerous events that we have gone on...and...we all started out as strangers. Take a look at the photo album page. So far, as of April 18th, we have had 121 meetups!!! Come join me on a repeat of that day at South mastic Picnic Area for a pot luck meet-up and get to know us. I HOPE TO SEE MANY NEW MEMBERS, OLD MEMBERS, AND MEMBERS WHO HAVE JOINED BUT NEVER ATTENDED AN EVENT.

I will have a grill going if anyone would like to bring hot dogs, brats, hamburgers, corn on the cob, etc.

Make sure you bring a chair, games, musical instruments, or anything you want to have a good time.

As soon as you pull into the picnic area you will see a pavilion on your right.  I will have a sign, also. Yellow tablecloths, too.


 

With over 50 people coming to this, remember, you are not bringing food for all 50, just bring a dish to share and along with all the other dishes, we will have plenty. I don't think I have ever seen two people bring the exact same recipe for potato salad, or whatever:-)

 

Assuming I am able to get tables, when you pull into the driveway, look straight ahead to the right and you will see Mastick Pavilion.  I have two big arrows with a sign and our name.  Yellow tablecloths and I will be wearing a yellow bike shirt.  I'll keep checking my phone.

    71!!!! Think we can break 100? I would have rented a pavilion if I knew this was going to be our biggest and best turnout! I will get to Mastick Pavilion at 11:00 tomorrow morning and guard some tables with my life LOL! But, just in case, bring chairs, LOTS of water, and blankets in case we have to sit on the grass.

      They'll keep their crowns because I'm not making chili (which is very good). I just got back from shopping though and have everything I need to make my special sauce (spaghetti). Will McDonald's sue me for using that term?
