As promised, here are the details for our annual Neighborhood Night Out party/picnic. As usual, we will get together on the second Tuesday of August – August 6th this year. And once more we have made arrangements with our neighbor, the Columbia Country Club, to use their ballroom (air conditioning in August is a good thing!). The Club will provide hamburgers and hot dogs, along with buns, condiments, and dishes. We need to bring everything else – side dishes, salads, desserts. It is always a good time – the kids get a chance to look at (climb on?) a fire truck, and things like that, and we all get to chat with our neighbors more than we often have the opportunity to do.
It will cost more this year – $10 for adults and $6 for kids 2-12 – to cover the cost for the Club. We want to encourage everyone to come, so any amount will be welcome (especially if it includes an additional donation!) and no neighbor will be turned away.
We should start arriving about 5:00 pm and will try to begin dinner by 6:00. Dinner will be followed by the Neighborhood Association “annual meeting” – including election of officers and planning our annual neighborhood-wide garage sale. We will need to choose a date for the sale; take a look at your calendars and see whether September 14 or September 21 works better for you. Both weekends are free of home football games, though there are other things going on in town those weekends.
We need to give the Club some idea how many are coming, so please let me (Martha) know if you are – preferably by mid-day this coming Friday, August 2. Best way is by e-mail (look on the “About” page – link above – for the address) but phone is ok too.
See you on August 6th!
