Spy Pond Picnic - Sun July 12th

Hello Again, OA!

We have decided to hold our first summer picnic of 2015 on the shores of Spy Pond Park, Arlington, on Sunday, July 12th, from 5-7 and make it a very simple affair. We'll all bring a little something to share, and a plate, a cup, and a fork.

We have a shareable document, so you can tell the group what you plan to bring. You can type in that you're bringing drinks or cheese and crackers or berries. Easy, cool, foods and drinks. We'll have some extra paper/plastic odds and ends, but the less disposable stuff we generate the better for the planet so plan to bring your own.

Patty will be giving us an update on PassMassAmendment and we are extending our picnic invitation to Occupy Winchester and anyone in the community who feels an affinity with Occupy. Everyone is always welcome.

I hope that other members of OA organize a second picnic later in the summer and allow all those who couldn't be in Arlington on the 12th to join us for some more catching up. We'll miss having you guys with us!

Spy Pond Park is adjacent to the bike path just East of Arlington Center. It has limited parking at the Pond Lane entrance, which is closest to the picnicking area and playground.

Currently we have no rain location, so please check your e-mail if weather becomes an issue.

See you on Sunday!


July 12th - Save the date for a picnic!

Hello Occupy Arlington,

We are hoping to get together on Sunday, July 12th from 5-7pm.

We're planning to picnic (outside if weather permits) and hold an open meeting. In the spirit of Occupy, we're looking for a public space in the center of Town to use as our preferred venue and an indoor space as backup. Your help with arrangements is welcome.

We will have more details about the picnic in a few days. Meanwhile, please save the date!
