A number of new families from the neighborhood came to enjoy our autumn potluck on September 23rd. It felt more like summer with sunshine and blue skies. Light breezes had just enough strength to propel long sinuous bubbles that drifted for yards across the lawn. The youngest bubble maker was only three-years old! New and tasty dishes appeared for the potluck with the return of a crowd-pleasing favorite from before–lemon curd squares. A duo of up-and-coming face painters wowed the two community police officers in attendance as well as others with their artistic creations. A doe and her fawn made a special appearance as they came for their evening stroll in the park.
Our summer potluck at Salter Grove was so enjoyable that we’re doing it again!
Bring your favorite dish on Saturday, September 23rd, from 4 p.m. until sunset (rain date September 30th). There will be a grill for BBQ lovers. No one complained last time that we had as many desserts as savory dishes but posting your dish at goo.gl/YGJAsr will guarantee that every dish will be different!
Long-time residents and more recent arrivals met to enjoy the first sunny afternoon in days at Salter Grove on July 15th. Face-painted children (courtesy of www.marcwkohler.com) romped nimbly over rock formations while adults played lawn games on the well-tended grass. Adults and children alike, quickly became addicted to making gigantic bubbles that undulated through the air. Tasty food was plentiful and there were almost as many desserts as savory dishes. A good time was had by all and some people even wondered if they had missed previous Friends of Salter Grove get-togethers. Both organizers and participants agreed that this potluck should not be the last. Stay tuned for the next one!
