The Quarryitish BBQ

Calling all Quarryites past and present!

Tomorrow, we are having a BBQ at the Irish homestead (check the address on the sidebar). This BBQ is just simply a time of hanging out, catching up with friends, celebrating the year and enjoying the beginning of summer (yay patios!!!).

No RSVP is required. All that is asked is that if are able to attend, if it's possible, could you please bring a BBQ dish (salad, dessert, etc.) with you? That would be excellent. We've already got the burgers covered!

ALSO, This IS a family friendly event (there IS a trampoline!), so bring along the kiddos too!

So the breakdown:

When? 6:30pm Monday

Hope to see you there, even if it's just for a little bit!

The plan is to meet at the Salvation Army in Burlington (located in the plaza at the corner of Appleby and Fairview) @ 6:30 pm where we'll be giving them a hand with whatever needs doing! This will be a great opportunity for us to grow as a group and continue our explorations of what it means to serve together, as well as apart.
A post-Sally Ann hangout might definately be in order afterwards as well. :)

See you Monday!

We are at the Irish homestead as usual, and if I'm not mistaken we will be lounging on the new couch downstairs. We'll spend some time looking back at the year that was, and looking forward into the future. We'll also have some time of checking in with each other, sharing and supporting.

The meal calendar will be up soon, but Monday is as follows:
Dinner - Les & Linds
Dinner V - Rob & Lisa
Bread & Veggies - Mark
Bevies - Rebecca
Dessert - Gilbert & Jessica

See you there.
