Reminder to mark your calendar for our annual CANADA DAY PICNIC on Saturday, July 3rd, 2010 from 4:00PM till whenever!  
We do hope you will be able to join us for another Canada Day Family Picnic on Saturday, July 3rd, beginning at 4:00pm and ending... whenever...  Actually, we will be celebrating both Canada Day and Independence Day to honour our host country.  Again, it is difficult to find a local venue that will allow alcoholic beverages, so it's back to Waxhaw!     Bring your lawn chairs and towels and be ready to have to some fun.  We even provide the squirt guns!  We'll have outdoor games for kids and adults: badminton, bocce ball, croquet, street hockey...can't have a Canada Day Picnic without street hockey and our famous treasure hunt.   Indoor games include a pingpong tournament, pool tournament, chess, checkers, backgammon... And lots of prizes and goodies for the children.
A special thanks goes to the Canadian Consulate in North Carolina for assisting us with Canadian favours and goodies, as well as RBC Bank here in Charlotte, who are also helping out with specialty items for prizes and goodies for the children.
We'll provide beverages (soft drinks, lemonade, iced tea...) and the hotdogs, hamburgers, condiments, tableware, etc.  We ask you to provide the following:
Last Name:  A   to   P  Please bring a salad or your favorite potluck
Last Name: Q   to   Z   Please bring a dessert.
We request a donation of $4.00 per adult and $2.00 per child.  This helps to defray the costs of the food items, tableware and the prizes and goodies for the kids.
BTW, raindate is Sunday, July 4th at 4:00pm
