Thanksgiving Gathering -Dec 1-3, 2017

The annual (almost famous) Thanksgiving Gathering will be the fist weekend in December. We are doing it late this year so as not to interfere with everyone's family thanksgiving gatherings but before family Christmas events. Besides, any time is a good to to gather with friends and give thanks.



WHEN:



Camping starting Friday, Dec 1 and ending Sunday PM (Dec 3)



The traditional T'giving meal will be early afternoon in Dec 3. By the way, this weekend also coincides with the nearby city of Clifton's Norwegian festival and they will be have a Norwegian lunch on Saturday Dec 2. All are welcome to join us.



You can camp Friday and/or Saturday nights or just come for the meal.



WHERE:



557 Rivercrest Rd

Valley Mills, TX



FOOD:



I'll put together something that that we can organize who is bringing what. If you are not able to bring something, that's fine. There will be plenty to eat and you can just make a donation to offset food cost. I REPEAT. THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF FOOD, come hungry



DETAILS



There are always details and I'll follow up later with details. I just wanted to put this out there for now so you will put it on your calendar

Sound great. I'm in. Last year the food was fantastic. I ate turkey & dressing until I was sick. Then I ate a little more. Then I had pie.

Thank you Theresa and Bob for inviting us again. We might trailer the little bikes Friday night after work or ride up Saturday. We will tent camp either way.

Re: Thanksgiving Gathering -Dec 1-3, 2017

By the way, for the record it's Teresa. Like Saint Teresa

Or just "Saint" for short

Or as I refer to her - "Yes Mam"
