This year’s Oak Meyer Gardens Summer Social is set for Sunday, July 24th, from 4pm-7pm. Our Summer Social is always a lot of fun, but there are some exciting changes planned for this year’s event that we hope will give residents a better opportunity to catch up with old acquaintances and to make new new friends in the neighborhood.
What’s new? For starters, the location. Instead of being held at a Holmes Park, this summer’s social will take place on Locust Street between 66th and 68th terraces. It’s a well-shaded spot and right in the center of Oak Meyer Gardens boundaries.
The 2011 get-together will also be a good excuse to show off your culinary skills—OMG will provide plenty of food, including the main course burgers, but this year we’re inviting residents to bring a side dish or dessert to share with other guests (see details below*) if they would like to.
Finally, we’re moving the social to a slightly later time slot—from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.—to give everyone a chance to finish off those weekend errands and work up a healthy appetite before the party starts.
There are still a few things that aren’t changing—OMG will provide family- friendly entertainment, including a moonwalk for the kids, a cotton candy machine and a chance to climb aboard a real fire engine. It’s going to be a great time so mark your calendars now for Sunday, July 24.
*“What Can I Bring to the Party?”
If you’d *like* to bring a dish, we suggest: odd house numbers, bring a side dish, even house numbers, bring a dessert OMG will provide burgers, hotdogs, drinks, cotton candy, ice cream and more!
