it's not exactly posted, i sent an email out to the group before you joined to see who would be interested, and only Cabot and Emily wrote back. i'd really like to have the majority of the members attend, so i have been holding back a bit, waiting for a little more interest.
so seeming as we have a few more folks who are interested, how about this....why don't we have this kid friendly potluck and games in the park thing, but lets have in on june 2nd, (6:30-9:30) so it gives people a little more notice to make it happen.
i will figure out how to make an event on this page and do it up, and i would also like to make some posters and put a few up around the neighbourhood to get some interest from people not already in the group.
sound good??

I'd be into having a get together potluck in the park. I work until 6:30 but would like to meet up to chat.

Sid- I don't want to take on too much as I already have a lot on my plate this summer- but if we can keep it fun and kid friendly then I am more likely to be able to participate. Maybe we could start with a potluck and games night at Victoria Park on the 26th? Bring some food to share and a game to play- that way we can just have fun and get to know each other a bit before we get into meatier stuff...?

How do i find out about the May 26 event? Where is it posted?
Comment by sidria hawkins on May 20, 2010 at 9:22pm
well.... i am aiming to have a potluck on the 26th? but i haven't gotten much response. so perhaps we should postpone? i want folks to come. what i especially want is for someone to be really excited and get things happening, is that you Clelie? i need help!
