lunarcamel and I did a little party planning today. We are the Presidents of the Park Party Free For All and have appointed a few Ministers to various posts. We need some people to appoint themselves for other things. Keep in mind that we do have people who are not on the ol' eljay, so they might be Ministers as well, but you can feel free to volunteer for more than one post. I will try to keep this list updated so that you can reference back to it later and find out who is doing what, or in case you forgot your assignment.
Without further ado, I bring you:
Alica and Mariah - Birthday Presidents, Generals of Operation Supima
Bryan - Minister of Meat Grilling
Matt - Minister of Bird Shit
Lisa - Minister of Supply
Frida - Minister of Veggie Grilling
Char - Minister of Fixin's
Jenny B - Minister of Ant Annihilation
Munira - Minister of Chicken
Now, these are the posts that need filling:
Minister of Drinks - Laura (xoomxoom), April (parilous)
Minister of Meat
Minister of Vegetables for Snacking- April (veggie platter)
Minister of Vegetables for Grilling - Laura (elf_owl)
Minister of Sides
Minister of Desserts
Minister of Games
For these positions, we will gladly accept more than one person. :) The Minister of Games does not have to *bring* the games, but just kind of keep an eye on them, make sure they don't grow legs and walk away, that sort of thing.
Mariah and I also made a list of some things for the party, which is what you ministers will be bringing. This is if you can't figure out something to bring, then here you go, bring this stuff! So, the list:
Shrimp for grilling
Veggie burgers/soy dogs
veggies (for snacking and/or grilling) - April (snacking)
corn on the cob (this, I suppose could fall under veggies)
pineapple/bacon (for the shrimp)
games (if someone has croquet that would be AWESOME!)
various tasty beverages - April
coolers - April
Did I miss anything?
Duh! I forgot day and time! August 27th, Reid Park, Ramada 14 (off Country Club immediately north of 22nd St). Bring the kids! Bring the dogs (on a leash)! Bring games! Bring uh...YOURSELF! Do NOT bring alcohol. We decided not to get the alcohol permit because 1) only beer is allowed and 2) neither Mariah or I really enjoys drinking beer out of a can. So, you can hold out for five hours I'm sure. More than likely, we'll be headed to the RG after the park debauchery is over. :)
Presence over presents, please.
2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
