From the Vancouver Manx


VANCOUVER MANX SOCIETY June 2014
This Tynwalld Day, Saturday July the 5th we are having our annual Manx Picnic!!
TIME: 11 am To 2:30 pm (we are only booked til 3pm) PLACE: Rocky Point Park Picnic Shelter, Port Moody
Take St. John Street and then turn north on Moody Street that will then turn into Murray Street and the parking area is at the end of the road.
This year we are introducing a valet service for those who are unable to find parking in the lower parking area and maybe aren
t into the walk down from the Westcoast Express parking area. So we are offering the following, drive down to the picnic shelter by the boat launch, unload your goodies and then we will run your car back up to the upper parking area. We will even go get it when it is time to go! If you need a ride to the picnic please let one of the committee know and we will do our best to get you there! We dont want anyone to miss out!
There is a wading pool there so if you wish, bring the swimsuits for the little ones! We set up over by the fish & chip shop.
Kevin will have games for the kids,and possibly some games for the not so little kids! There will be our usual raffle. So please bring a new item for the raffle. The Manx will supply tea & coffee and pop/juice. You can bring your own picnic food or enjoy the fish & chips sold at the park. You may want to bring a chair to sit out and watch the games and have a natter! There are picnic tables to sit at as well.

What happens’ if it is raining??? Well if it is only going to be “variable showersas opposed to all out rain then we will go ahead.
Don’t forget to mark the Harvest Tea/Back-end do on your calendar for October 26th. More info to come out later in the summer.
Regards,
Lesley McGee
